Lessons of Loyalty

Hidden Thorns

By shanmuga priyaPublished 30 days ago 1 min read

Life has taught a lesson clear,

Loyalty can't be controlled, my dear.

No matter the good you give away,

It doesn't ensure they'll treat you that way.

Those who mean the world to you,

May not value what you do.

Love's reflection often distorts,

In hearts where trust falls short.

Sometimes those we cherish most,

Are the ones who hurt us close.

Promises break, trust decays,

In the shadows of love's maze.

Hold your heart, but guard it well,

For in love's realm, it's hard to tell.

Those you trust may let you down,

Yet in your strength, you won't drown.
