Loyalty allows us the freedom to be who we are

To make mistakes knowing that there is an unbreakable bond that ties us together

A safe place to come back to

A place void of doubt and insecurity

A place of faith, conviction and total trust

Knowing that someone or something has always got your back

And that you in turn have theirs

Loyalty provides you with a springboard in which you can launch back into life after a set back

A solid foundation to build your home

A safe place to retreat to when you need

And when loyalty dies, something in our collective humanity dies along with it

We’re thrust into chaos and uncertainty

Pushed further towards fear and insecurity

And paranoia.

There will be no place left to rest your head

No shoulder to lean on

Nothing or no-one you can count on to wipe away your tears

Just an empty void, left to fend for yourself.

A life without loyalty is like a rudderless ship drifting off to sea

It’s aimless, pointless.

Going nowhere and without any reason.

It’s the undoing of the social fabric that binds us all together

Because when loyalties die, societies crumble

Relationships become weak, 

And families are torn apart.

Loyalty is a commitment you make

It says, I will go to the ends of the earth for you, 

I will suffer with you

Reminding each other, that we are in this thing together,

Perhaps you still think you can live happily affording this loyalty only to yourself

But unfortunately, life is not and never has been, an individual pursuit

  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
