Trust Betrayed

Poem By Kathlene Ann

You say you trust me.
Once I trusted you too.
A promise, broken.
You continue to renew the promise.
Your failure to remain true,
To remain steadfast and loyal,
goes unnoticed.
But I noticed. I cared.
And now I don't.
But that's ok because I know you're just lying.
If you trusted me,
Really and truly with all your heart,
You would not question my judgement,
You would let me go and watch me fly away
With only a short 'adeiu.'
So I do not need your approval.
I do not need your help,
And I no longer need your love.
Goodbye, old friend.
Don't bother sending me your luck,
Everything you are and were has been erased from my heart.

(no) Care Bear

When I hug this teddy bear
It almost feels like you still care.
We haven't talked in o-so long.
When e're I need you, you are gone.


The feeling is common but temporary.
Or is it? Is life what it seems?
People yawn and laze and complain.
People say they've nothing to do.

The Seven Deadly Sins

In human nature the seven deadly sins are always present, though they often hide.
Sloth, Gluttony, Lust, Envy, Greed, Wrath and Pride.
Passion was sown into human nature at birth
So the race would continue to populate this earth.

The Meaning Of Life

People sometimes ask 'what's the meaning of life?
What's the point of all this?
Why go through this shit? '
When I was younger I had the answer.

Human Frailty, I Cannot Overcome It

So weak.
I don't understand.
My mind is clear,
I know where I stand.
