Now I Know

Now I Know short poem

Credulous and Innocent,

Dewy eyed and Trusting,

Free of evils and moral wrongs,

A Facade came by abusing and accusing,

Now I Know

“The Wolf in Sheep’s clothing”

Sensitive and Assailable,

Tripping on words that read adore,

Cruel intentions, Ulterior motives,

Lies and Betrayals galore,

Now I Know

“All’s fair in love and war”

Idealistic and Unrealistic,

Romantic and Moonstruck,

Unaware that love needed a knack,

And honesty always took the flak,

Now I Know

“The Straw that breaks the camel’s back”
