I had to dash and hide for a little bit
Found myself 2 feet deep in a little pit
Had to duck and dive, what a near miss
Emotions all over the place, it takes the piss
Pain isn’t good for the soul,
It diminished my confidence
Left feeling, less than whole,
In a hole feeling hopeful
Just me, my pen and my notebook.
I changed my routine and bounced back from the scene
Surrounded myself with positive influences on my side; my team
It takes the strong to notice the wrongs and re-write life
Best to think things through at least twice.
Is the company you keep genuine? Or are they faking nice?
It’s ok to leave Mr nice guy and Mrs nice pal,
Some are only out for the good days
Watching your every move like night owls.
On the other hand, some are only around for the motives and not the keep safe memories
But, when that runs dry so, does their availability.
Believe me. People aren’t who they claim to be, it’s make believe not reality.
