Betrayed

Told your something your not, sold out by supposed friends
Left alone to face all the hard and sharp appraisals
of who you are, what you've done.
Misrepresented yet silent
Because there is truly no winner or loser
Only fear and loss and humiliation
 
Today is the day of betrayal
What things have we done or not done
Adding to the offense, not a winner or a loser
A new way to walk the way of the cross
Seeing where we need to make amends
Or where we have fallen short in our relationship
 
Sensing where we need to sow the seeds of forgiveness
Love, kindness, healing joy
Where do we need to be silent, listening to
another's picture. Do we dare to take the inner walk?
We find the journey there rough as we die to self
Yet we will eventually touch the deeper peace of healing
