Friends are confusing people.
They’re hard to understand.
Just when you think they care,
they hurt you like no one can.
Using you is a goal.
It is their reason for living.
They’ll take you for all your trust
when you think they are so giving.
So why do we call these people friends
when they are not?
Weren’t we taught what a friend is
or have we just forgot?
