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

Thank you very much for the kind compliment. I hope this poem can help many or simply help put things in to perspective. It's the silver lining I guess. This poem to me is like the child you don't need to worry about, it will look after itself and long after I die, I would like to thing this poem shall live on. I hope this piece proves to be timeless and help many many more in the future.
