Traitors Among Us

Traitors Among Us

People are not always what they appear to be,
a world of black and white, yet so much gray,
never knowing whether to stay, fight, or flee,
dilemmas and decisions faced along the way.

Whether friend or foe we often do not know,
each of us have an agenda that is all our own,
good versus evil struggling everywhere we go,
we have suspicions by one’s manner and tone.

There is those we trust, those we think we can,
a journey where obstacles are many on the path,
but respect and honor sadly do not rule the land,
ruled by greed and temptation creates the wrath.

Power and money transforms to betrayal and lies,
to protect their secret some just won’t stand still,
to preserve his identity he doesn’t care who dies,
for a lone traitor in the ranks can cause the kill.

The undercover police officers have a lot to fear,
maintaining their cover while developing cases,
the real enemy sometimes can be close and near,
under a rock, or behind a badge, so many places.

Yes the line of work they are in is a dangerous one. Trust is earned and it is hard to build this. There are only a handful of people in my life i can truly trust a few friends who are loyal and true and some family members. Been hurt to many times of others i have thought were true and trusted to easy. In any walks of life beware for we do not know...


Brilliant poem

Reading this poem you always seem to deliver to us
how it projects just the way this jungle world is changing  and you now no not your neighbor or your friend.
.Who do you trust in this insane world that becomes more and more corrupt  with each dawning day ... This section of the poem says it all
 Thank you for visiting my page of always bring me a smile ....Your loyal friend that you can this crazy world
