pity

you cannot control
how people perceive
the world
cannot comprehend
the way they will
twist things
in an effort
to make them seem
virtuous

all you can do
is live your truth
and as you smile
watch those
that frown and sigh
to find the ones
that were never
truly your friends
to begin with

it doesnt make
it any easier
to handle as they
spread their
petty bile
lamenting everything
but themselves
for their sad lives
spent sobbing alone

people get
what they deserve
i struggled
for a long time
but stayed true
and found her
true friends
and what was lost
was nothing at all
