True Colours

Bad situations reveal colours of truth,
a chance to see how friends and relations view you.

Judgement day 
shall we say,
a time to decide, 
who to kick out
or keep by your side.

Always remember who turned away or deserted you.
Make them a memory, 
don't make them an enemy.
Pretending and false, 
you don't know them at all,
disguising their faults, 
their views and their thoughts,
using fake personalities 
in untrue realities,
asking for favours reducing your salary.

But in a real moment of need, 
when you beg, cry and you plead,
how they respond will test your belief.

Cus lit up with light
so strong and so bright
both who are sighted 
and unsighted alike can see,
if your really seen as an important priority
do they show you love
or a real lack of loyalty?

A blessing for you
as you discover who's true. 
Some fools you stood around
are nowhere to be found.
It's time to start new
and walk away tall
remember they're nothing,
they're nothing at all.

TRUTH in "True Colours!" I love; " Always remember who turned away or deserted you. Make them a memory, don't make them an enemy." #Epic
