Today when you have friends
You don’t know who is who
Some will be dishonest
And some of them will be true

Some will talk about others
Then point the finger at you
They will make all the trouble
Then put the blame on you

Some will get close to you
By using false pretenses
Then stab you in the back
And still claim to be your friends

My grand mother use to say
True friends are like family
The true bound of friendship
Will last till eternity

My father would always tell us
Always treat others kind
Only then true happiness
Of life you will find

A true friend will tell you
If you are doing wrong
Will never lead you astray
Or put you down

We all need friends
Cause one hand cannot clap
Some times we all need
A helping hand on the back

Some will just want from you
Even take the very the last one
Then will walk away from you
Once your use to them is done

Just as the bible says
False Prophets are among us
So are many false friends
To betrayed your trust

I thought I found some friends
That I could really trust
but I got to learn to be
More careful I really must

I even open up to them
And bear what’s in my heart
But their only intentions
Was to tore me apart

Friendship is gift
That must be appreciate
You won’t miss a true friend
Until it is to late
