A Friend with a Mirror: A Poem
In many years of observing human race
I also tried to be as supportive as I could
but some friends were gone with no trace
then it took me a while, but I understood.
The way I treat myself is how I treat my friend
not sugarcoating my contribution to any crap
always making sure that I fully understand
why I am insisting on staying in my trap.
That may piss some folks as they expect pity
while I provide a mirror, not a facial tissue
not to join their story of life being shitty
but urging them to face that issue.
For, anyone's victim image I'll never support
even if that would miss definition of a friend
while my words of pity always appear short
with just a shiny mirror in my friendly hand.
