Lessons of You


I should have known

when you called me

a lesson

that penance would be paid

in succession

to your abrupt


You cannot build

an empire of you and me

on lies and deception.

One of us

would always question

had we paid the price yet?

The debt was always us, wasn’t it?


  1. Sadness when such things happen, but the acceptance ‘you cannot build an empire……’ is actually very positive. Until we get to that point we cannot begin to rebuild. When we do then we often look for stronger foundations and build more slowly. I like these words. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
