we live in a corrupt society

where everythingis blamed

on our music, or the shows we watch,

or the people we call friends

but really it's not us

or the things we do

or the friends we have

it's them

it's the things that they do

it's the stress

and the emotional bombardment

and the physical hurting

and the loneliness

it's the withheld emotions

and the hurts we endure

and the disappointment we feel

when someone we counted on,

someone we loved and trusted

leaves us or

doesn't come through for us

when we needed them

but why bother when there are easier ways?

what do you do when everything you believed in

everything you loved deserts you?


leave it all behind
