Why we betray ourselves? Because we get lonely. We get tired of waiting for our tribe to show up so we settle for people who are not really what we want. We deal with bums, snakes, jokers, trade, garbage and losers just to take away the ache of loneliness that quietly screams inside our tired bones. Of course we know we deserve "more" but "more" takes so long to come and by the time it does show up it's time for us to go. Off to the morgue, tag on our toes waiting to be carried off to nothing world. We don't set out to betray ourselves. We just get tired of going it alone. We fill our lives up with busy work, goals, but truth be told we weren't put on this earth to be alone and yet that is what some of us are forced to endure because trying to find good people who match your worth is damn near impossible. So if you got your tribe, if you got a couple of roots in your life, you better hold on cuz nothing hurts worse than the pain of being alone.
