NOW I STAND ALONE
In times of joy your friends are true
In times of pain they abandon you
Now I know that human nature
Is corrupt; made to hurt; to torture
Empty faces and hollow hearts
Venomous arrows and lethal darts
Lovely eyes of cheep fragile beads
Invented tales about noble, brave deeds
I stood by you, but you betrayed me
You shied away – turned around to flee
Your feeble excuse: you have no dime
To lend me from your small purse of time.
Now I stand alone in my pain
But I shall manage without you.
