Misplaced Loyalty

I've invested too much time Into people I thought were genuine It's baffling How many people you know You think have your back But actually don't When you need me there I show up When I need you It's you know I would but I've come to learn I ain't the only thing desyroying me The other part of it is misplaced loyalty It's crazy to me How you could treat people like royalty But when I'm in a hole They can't even throw a rope to me That's some bull and bull is bull Even if it smells like potpourri Some people just don't care They'll throw you under the bus After you give them their bus fare I'm good enough to help you out When no one would But when I need you to vouch for me It's a shoulder shrug

A write of our lives...a measure of love for those without heart...
