    27/112

    30/112

    You will put up a wallJudging others might happen in a rush

    Because of your fear to fall

    As youfight against the crush

    26

  • 8/14/2019 Betrayal in a Nutshell_text

    31/112

    As the world becomes a stage

    With music in the round

    27

  • 8/14/2019 Betrayal in a Nutshell_text

    32/112

    But, a new sound may be only temporarySoon to leave your head

    The voice of ever symphony

    That deserts your heart instead

    28

  • 8/14/2019 Betrayal in a Nutshell_text

    Unending quakes

    And ceaseless agitation

    31

  • 8/14/2019 Betrayal in a Nutshell_text

    36/112

    Your spirit may take a break from youTo leave you time with yourself

    You may still be alone with how you do

    Taken down, broken apart, set out on a shelf

    32

  • 8/14/2019 Betrayal in a Nutshell_text

    37/112

    Move away from sufferingStay away from suddenly feeling great

    Pay attention to the living

    With short lives that wait

    33

  • 8/14/2019 Betrayal in a Nutshell_text

    38/112

    Rest your mind in a quiet placeSerenity is good reprieve

    36

  • 8/14/2019 Betrayal in a Nutshell_text

    Without the rest of forgiveness

    With no mercy in her womb

    37

    The innocence you were from the start

    38

  • 8/14/2019 Betrayal in a Nutshell_text

    Because the pain is so agonizing

    39

    Reading Lili Dauphins poetic, emphatic affirmations urges me to open my mind and heart, to the

    sheer goodness of being. Her voice reaches that special place inside each of us - a summons to

    re-discover that original, naked joy that can be so easily lost in our times.
