Blood suckers sucking till there’s nothing left
Stealing from your soul so brazenly we can’t even call it theft
No skin off nose, I’ve seen friends turn foe
I’ve had demons in my bed, devils play with my head
I’ve been chewed up and spat out, left in the cold
I’ve had users call me brother but when shit gets real they fold
No holes barred when you’re at your lowest loosing your mind, you’ll see who’s got you and who’s around just to have a good time
They’ll dance with you in the club neck shots with you at the bar
But these words no action folks won’t be there to help pick up the pieces when you’ve taken it too far
I’ve been used mislead treated like I was dead, by a few fake friends who wanted my head
They’ll laugh at your downfall kick you when you’re down, they’ll even rub salt in your wounds
They’ll spread propaganda they’ll try and tarnish your name like fake news
But I truly thank you, i’m so grateful now I can differentiate between what’s fake and true
My circle decreased in size but increased in quality, real friends real love
They’ll pick you up when you’re down correct you when your wrong go beyond and above
They want to see you win because when you lose they lose
Through thick and thin the good times the bad and the ugly, real recognise real you can’t pick and choose
People wonder why I’m so happy why I’m so grateful for the friends and family I have in my life. Why my friends are my family and my family are my friends. Why I’d do anything for those I love.
They’ve seen me at my worse, but they stuck by me. They loved me enough to know my mistakes do not define me.
They saw me for me.
Sometimes you have to look back at the dark times to really appreciate how far you’ve come. To be grateful for where you are and where you no longer are.
In life we meet people who match the mindset we have at that stage of our life, as you grow and your mindset changes they can not come with you unless they too are willing to grow. At the time you may be hurt and not understand but as the years go by and they become a distant memory you realise why they couldn’t come with you.
Be grateful for the lessons, be sorry for any hurt you caused, forgive any wrongs against you but never regret a day.
Life is a learning curve. You live and you learn.
