first my dad, he cant be loyal. for a fact, i still dont understand why. until now, he just refused to be honest with my siblings and i, well maybe tell to our face that he has a second wife. he cant be loyal to my mom. that's the first loyal that i learn.
then, i learn through relationships. i learn how to be loyal to someone. to give all of my love for him. to make him happy. to love him, no matter what. and i quickly forget the people around me.
then, i learn that loyalty can be broken. TRUST, which is like a sibling to the word loyal, can also be betrayed. i learn that loyalty can be said in words, which are called lies. i learn that the word loyal alone causes pain.
with the pain, i discovered another type of loyal. its the most beautiful of all. the loyalty of friends and family. to have a shoulder to cry on, to depend on them at the point where i am weakest, to know that they'll always be there for me no matter what. the feeling is just, amazing. i love this type of loyal. and will always do.
so, at the end of the day. i cant blame the word loyal for causing so much pain. because it also brings me all the happiness. i can never trade it with another word this year.
MY 2009 IS EVOLVED AROUND THE WORD LOYAL ITSELF.
