The betrayal has cut to the bone It never leaves my soul I try to go about my daily life But the pain creeps up It cuts like a knife It invades even my dreams Memories that were happy Have been decimated Reminders have been tainted Joy has been replaced with Anguish I hope it was all worth it My eager siblings This greed you’ve shared Has clouded your legacy Turned you into pirates Thieves That steal Tears fall for your souls That will not Rejoice for your actions Have determined your fate I cannot forgive but I must forget you To save my own sanity I choose to honor not destroy Have pity on your souls Fortune Abandonment Money Intitlement Yearn for it all Will never fulfill For what you’ve attained Can never bring joy For it was acquired dishonestly Destroying trust
