For when you betrayed the ground 

By taking your steps up the ladder

The ground did not fold underneath you

Words, they reveal not the extent of accepting an apology 

And how difficult it is, that we would be like ground

Because betrayal hurts

Just as much as the added weight

Each step you take up the ladder,

Each step taken, yet the ground holds you steady

So to forgive I will be ground

Finding my inner strength

To carry the burden disposed off by your betrayal 

By the steps you have taken,

My heart, steady,

Should your ladder crumble to the ground

In pieces, buried in remorse

As you beg forgiveness .
