Loyalty

 

 

A person is either

Loyal

Or not.

 

If they are 

A loyal person,

They are loyal to 

Everyone.

 

When a person claims 

A loyalty

To a select few only,

That is not loyalty,

That is a preference

Of judgement.

 

Loyalty is something

Altogether different,

And usually,

Those who have no integrity

Are not capable of loyalty.

 

Loyalty.

A word misunderstood.

 

Be loyal to what you feel, know in your heart, mind 

And soul, is true and right for you.

 

Ignore all else.

You will make mistakes,

But if you do what you know is right,

True, and just

At the time you do it,

That is a quality that no money can buy,

And rare...

Precious...

And when you have that quality,

Everyone knows your true worth.

 

It cannot help but be seen.

Yes. Unfortunately though, it

Yes. Unfortunately though, it is so misunderstood. That's life. I know one thing, and that is that I feel a lot better when I'm loyal as much as i can be with everyone. It just makes things a whole lot .....easier? Not to say I'm a pushover...but i do believe in giving peopke the benefit of the doubt to a reasonable degree, and am more than willing to be accountable for the mistakes. I sleep like a baby for it. (And have nooooooo qualms or guilt that way about dropping the ax if need be! ;-).

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

agreed I have very much a similar philosophy. however, when the loyalty is not reciprocated then there is no desire to maintain it either way. forgive forget forgive regret forgive yourself because them leaving your life is never something to regret. ;)

    Agree with your poem and

 

 

Agree with your poem and definition on loyalty. A lot of people demand loyalty but as you pointed out loyalty can only be discerned by the individual.

this poem really spoke to me, it's true loyalty has only been predefined by those who do not know the real essence of it.
