Wafa Shayari

Loyalty in poetry, as a quality of human character, has been an important preoccupation because it exists in relation to disloyalty, infidelity, or insincerity. It is a pity that sometimes the loyal lovers and beloveds get subjected to disloyalty. This provides enough material to poets to reflect upon the very meaning of loyalty and how it defines the attitude of the persons concerned. Some verses around this subject would hold your attention for the perspective they develop around this experience.
