Not related to the previous two posts:
"I don't know why he puts his family through it." What I heard someone say right before I was arrested. Now, I understand. Love, loyalty, respect cannot be forced, although fear can drive people into submission. I don't like to lose, but I would rather lose a game than my integrity, than my soul, than my people. (My fictional character from the book I am writing.)
Tried to ride the fence,
tried to play the good guy
when we all knew,
and you knew we would learn more;
Tried to cover it up,
but I uncovered far too much;
Did not know 'how much she liked to win.'
Did not know how I value what is right.
Shame on you.
