Pass The Test

Tags: poetry

Just get a life, don't be so soft I say,
The friendship that I thought I earned is through,
And will not come again, I'll go my way.
Forget what they have told me, it's not true.

They come and go and never tell me why,
Or feed me lies that make no sense, I know, 
But let it go and give a last goodbye.
To friends who are not friends, just bid adieu.

My faith in people should not be erased
Since only some have lost their way and strayed,
And many friends stay true, their hearts encased
In precious gold, my trust won't be betrayed.

But there are some who cannot seem to be
The friend they promised to become, in time,
So I'll give up my hopes and set them free
To be what they must be, it's not a crime.

I do not think that everyone is proved
As pure as sterling in relationships.
I've found to my regret some are not moved
To be my friend until I cash my chips.

I never bet on how long it will last
That's always been a loser's game at best,
But even young or old, some are steadfast,
They stand beside you, and they pass the test.
