Diamond Absolutes Betrayed by Michael Romani There were diamond absolutes In all those times before But, when those times failed to contribute? Their value was diminished forevermore Lives lost for the price of a pearl necklace Love shattered deep inside for all involved What was magic became a tragic place And somehow the world called this evolved From this dark place of conquered fear A young man dreamed himself a hero And while this beautiful lie kept courage near There would be times he felt less than zero No anguished cries for mercy Rose above life's gathering storm All of his belief turned to heresy As gloom became his new norm In all of this, he heard the ocean whispering That hope and love were betrayed As he watched her take his children Against all laws, God's and man's, he cried betrayed (c) July 4, 2018 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
