Karma, my friend

Updated on December 7, 2009

Have you ever been hurt by 'false' friends?

See results

We all weather storms and learn and grow, this is my expression of that


I feel so alone
So ...afraid
Maybe a little paranoid
A bit incomplete
Like a picture that won’t appear on a Polaroid
Something’s changed
It certainly has.

The people I know
The people I call friends
Seem to all be ‘off’ with me
What have I done?
What have I said?
Are things being used against me???
Something’s changed

It’s funny ‘cause I haven’t seen them in a while,
With a break from Uni,
I chilled out home style,
My charger’s gone, so my phone’s dead.
But I’ve got facebook to save the day,
It’s where I inform the world of my status;
The place the world will play...communicate.
Sent them all messages
Received varied replies
From cold to just none
Even fake ones

I even attempt to speak to some of them online
Instead of replying
They just go offline
I don’t know what to do
‘Cause during the term its where I live
It’s my home away from home,
My second family...
You know?

Feels like they hate me,
Feels so cold.
It’s probably my fault.
I just might be a SHIT friend
So no one wants to be around me EVER again.
I’ve never been hated, or so I’m told.
First time for everything...Right?????

I feel guilty feeling this way
I feel hmnn... maybe that’s all in my head
Am I the one in the wrong?
Why am I singing this SAD song?????
It can’t be me!!!
At times other can see the WAYS they have done me wrong
But I feel this battle I may still have to fight alone
As the power of one seems to control them all

All I’m doing is striving to be me
The best me I know I can be
I didn’t realise I was so different.
I no longer fit the overriding CONSENSUS.
I refuse to fall into the one thought for all
I’m a free thinker, with expression
Who’s just hit the wall because she’s ALONE.

I know I am STRONG
But some fears keep me from taking them on-
On my own- I’ve seen the damage they do when in packs
I don’t know who to trust
And who will have my back.

A little melodramatic
Yes, I know
But how would you feel if the friends you know, and love
Just left you hanging at the side of the road
I am really not putting on a show
This is how I feel right here and now
My strength fading
My happiness waning

But it’s not you; it’s me...
NO!!! It’s you; not me
I know who I am I lost her before
For a minute

Let you change me; so I could be ‘in it’
Oh how I was unaware;

had I been paying attention I would not have gone there

But I’m back. I’m all me and strong
I can do this
I can stand up TALL
And face you
And be true to me.

Has something changed?
It certainly has...NOT!!!
This is the way you’ve ALWAYS been.
I was blind to blind to see
Now you’ve let the colours show
At the same time I let my real self grow

I see you the REAL you,
You’re WEAK and SAD
Letting your minds be shaped
With horrible thoughts not even your own
One day it will all become clear
I hope that day be fast, and not to late
As you maybe in a dreadful state
In that time, that hour you need
ME and

You feel so alone
So ...afraid
Maybe a little paranoid
A bit incomplete
Like a picture that won’t appear on a Polaroid
Then you too will see
Something changed

KARMA can be a BITCH, my friend.
