FREE CEE why must i be betrayed by the people i respect the most

Why must I be betrayed by people I respect the most
Everything in my life has become a contradiction
All I hear now are cowards who are quick to boast
And any respect I had for these people turned out to be pure fiction

Why must the people I consider friends treat me with enmity
When they should be eager to concede to a simple request
Why to people I consider allies all seem not to care then I deem them the enemy
And answer to the demonic voice of the devil’s behest

I have no place to hide as I used to in crowded bars
I have no place to run from people who sold themselves out for a few sheckles more or less 
I am left with a wounded lamb and a body marred by bloody scars
And only sorrow for cowards that this burdened man is left to confess

I used to have a grand design which demanded I fulfill
I used to have hope and a way to ignore selfish folk
I used to have the means, way and will
but now i'm left destitute, depressed and broke

    Hello Jeffry, Excellent Quatrain although a bit depressing dear poet. Still very well written. Here is to sunnier and brighter days.... Smiles
