The title says it all

When a friend betrays me

I am not at all surprised

I just wonder

what took them so long,

and I have to wonder,

who the ex-girlfriend thinks she kids,

why she still talks to my boyfriend

takes no guessing at all

(but really you should move on girl,

I don't like sharing him),

When someone is rude

or has an entitled attitude

I don't confront or shame

I just forget their name

In all my years on earth

there's not one thing 

not one surprise

we know there is death

sometime after birth

we know we don't 

get to choose

our family

just our friends

and in this life

people will say anything

to get your money

if you find someone kind

hold onto them for dear life

because in this life

people are not real,

they will lie and they will steal

if they think they can get ahead

and they will use you

but its up to you

to open your eyes 

in time,

or you will find,

no one will listen

to your cries

they got what they wanted

and you'll just be haunted

by bad decisions,

maybe writing this poem was one,

but it needs to be said,

get it through your head

I see right through

I know all that's in a bag of tricks

just make sure that what you break

is something you can fix,

but too bad for you,

When I'm done I'm done,

I know you no longer

and that makes me stronger,

but I still wish you the best,

but that's how it goes

here's the rest,

its what you chose,

I've seen it all,

and I'm over everything,

please don't expect a call,

let's see what tomorrow will bring.

A lot of disillusion and disappointment in this, Origins. A lot of truth, too. Excellent work.
