Betrayal is a word betrayed
its meaning spans the seas,
used more than the withered nests
of sticks in old oak trees.
I may feel betrayed by time,
betrayed by purpose or by fate.
Yet, our hearts are truely scored
when remose arrives a day too late.
Look into my eyes, my friend
say you feel my pain.
Then spit into the wind, my friend,
my soul now wrinkled from the rain.
Grant that I may not judge my niegbor until I have walked a mile in his moccasians
