    Trust and Betrayal

    I was betrayed by my father, mother, husband, sister, pastor, co-worker, and a best friend. But I have to admit that I also betrayed my sister and a friend, and perhaps others I can't think of right now.

    I Once Thought You Were My Friend...

    But then I realized you weren't. So I let you go, and you told my bro my every secret I had confided in you out of hatred and remorse. Possibly out of regret of not yelling at me instead. You knew it would hurt worse...but I still forgive you.
