I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"Find Out Who Your Friends Are " by Tracy Lawrence
She is rudely awakened
when she discovers her friends are not genuine,
making her feel better off alone.
Her sorrowful heart aches,
knowing others take her friendship for granted,
offering her nothing real in return.
Feeling betrayed like Jesus
she forgives them,
but her time for reaching out has ended,
for there is no place
for fake people in her life.
