  Your telling me to do good

be strong, survive.

but the words you are saying,

are killing me inside.

you wont be here to see it,

any accomplishment i get

so why pretend to care when you dont?

it just doesnt seem to fit.

you wont see me graduate,

throw my cap in the air.

you wont be here for anything again.

it just doesnt seem fair.

we were friends for so long,

there was so much we shared.

now your ending our friendship

like you never even cared.

i wish there was another way,

that we could get through this all.

but i cant even talk to you,

you've put up a wall.

i guess this is it.

the end, no more.

i'v cried my eyes red,

puffy and sore

i cant take anymore,

i give up, you win

just know in my heart.

your always my friend.
