Life's Greatest Mystery: Resolved - Poem by Kim Aouad

It was the nights when I cried myself to sleep
The times my fall was steep
The words you said to me
Have resolved life's greatest mystery

I trusted you with myself
I gave all my secrets away
To someone I thought was willing to stay
And oh, how I regret

In my eyes you would stare
And promise you would not share
All the stories I willed keep hidden
The ones the world has forgotten

I've been betrayed
By the one I trusted most
I guess 'coward' is a fair enough trait
To describe the hell you caused upon me

I once saw in you all I needed
To keep the monsters inside at bay
Truth is, love has retreated
And I'm sorry, I cannot stay

The end is here
But no, I do not fear
For I no longer care
What you still have against me to make others stare

I once regretted nothing
And used to say it with such pride
But time made me realize
I regret letting you in

As I see it
Life's greatest mystery
Ended up being
Why people backstab and betray

I know the answer:
People are selfish
So they deliver
Any news they get to conquer
The peace another
Stores inside....

I've been hurt
A million times
And damned shall I be
Shall I trust any other again

No one but me
By myself
Against the world

That might have scared me then,
But it sure as hell does no more
For I am a different person than I was
And my heart is stone and my soul long gone

Damned shall I be
Shall I trust any other again
