UNREAL PEOPLE


Why do people keep saying what they don't really mean
Like when they say AM SORRY they only want you to forget
Making empty promises that they cannot fulfill
When it comes to really watching your back they can't hold for life
why do they keeping having evil intentions
Like when they say they want to help you they only want you to owe them
Making sacrifices that they don't mean to do
When it comes to really saving your life they just can't go further
When they say they love you its in the reflection of hate
You take them as a friend but they see you as a foe
Its funny how they unveil their evil face
From that caring friend to that mortal enemy
Like when they say TRUST ME they only want to burst you
they appear when the going is good and disappear when its bad
When they talk about a perfect world
They will say it will never be in my generation
They will say they care so much
But they keep showing you the opposite
They will make you part of the game
But not really part of the plan
They will sit an laugh infront of you
But stand against you at your back
They strive so hard to earn you trust
Only to shatter it in the slightest chance they get
We see our lives as a painted portrait
But they work so hard in putting dark colours in it
When they shed tears in your time of misfortune
They only help to make a river of misery for you to swim in
They neglect the purpose of our creation and existence
Forgetting life is a lonely place where we need each other to survive
Who should one trust in time of distress?
A betraying friend or an heartless foe
they say a good turn deserves another
But to me it is always good to be good

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
