I try to force the thoughts together, Hoping they'll form a cohesive metaphor It's all for naught, My mind suffering a drought Whatever stories I have inside, Simply refuse to come to life
Step forward and accept responsibility For your words and actions, For the person you are today
Tell me, show me, Something truly sincere "I'm sorry," doesn't mean anything To me anymore
You spurned the flame, Turning love away
A true friend will treat you with care, respect, and kindness. They'll consider your feelings when choosing their words and actions. So if a friend constantly makes you feel down, is critical to the point of just being cruel, or purposely says/does things they know will make you upset, that person isn't a true friend and they don't deserve your friendship. You should never be made to feel lesser by the people around you, and if that's the case, it may be time to remove them from your life. Remember, you deserve care, respect, kindness, and so many other wonderful things.
