Did I make a mistake? (Poem No. 84 from 100 poems for my sweetheart by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Did I make a mistake
To trust you so much?
Did I make a mistake
To believe you?
Did I make a mistake
To love you?
Did I make a mistake
To give you so much?
I cannot help asking myself;
You are not what you were;
You have gone full circle;
I see myself
Licking my wounds;
Let me assure you;
I will be strong;
I am on the ground;
But I will get up;
And will not only walk,
I will run;
I will be strong;
Not only strong but stronger;
I will be happy;
Not only happy but happier;
If I made a mistake
To give you all I had,
I am not the first;
Neither shall I be the last.
What I now know is
We live in a cruel world;
Those you trust most
Can stab you hardest
On your back.
