you give them love... they run away.
give them time...then you're replaced.
say something...they'll take it the wrong way.
you get fed up with it fast,
you wonder how long you'll last.
It's almost not worth it,
you kinda want it to end,
but there are some things
you don't want to lose from that friend...
unique things that can't be found
in anyone else.
then for once you think of yourself...
why spend forever walking on eggshells,
saying just the right things,
when you have people that will love you
Absolutely, no matter what....
and they really show that.
just when you think you'll be cast aside,
the split second you start to regret saying it,
they spread their wings and take you in.
yes, they are angels....
they are the ones that will always be with you,
the ones that aren't prejudice.
they respect your opinions and your love
and will do so NO MATTER WHAT.
they won't only say that,
they will show it too...
and if they are really worth your life and time,
you will never doubt it.
That is what you should hold on to.
So, I say goodbye to those
I can't seem to appease...
I am tired of trying so hard to be just right.
I have others that I can just be around
who wont care if I'm black, unchristian or gay.
they love me just the way I am,
each and every day.
I am sorry for your loss,
But I need to move on.
I'm tired of giving so much
and then getting stepped upon.
If I'm that important, maybe you will learn...
unless you are more open minded
you'll have trouble in this world.
so, enjoy your little fake tea parties,
with your little fake friends.
I have bigger fish to fry
And much more help to lend.
