Stop surrounding yourself with critics you call friends
They’ll never be there when this ends.
They’re only there for the good part
Not to comfort your broken heart.
They’ll drag you to their level when you try to rise
Cause you’ll always be a failure in their eyes.
Give up these toxic relationships
You’re a lifeboat in an ocean of sinking ships.
They’ll try to rip you, tear you apart,
You just don’t give up, regroup, restart.
Don’t ever let loneliness get the better of you,
There are people out there who look up to you.
Watch them say how you’re never going to make it
Just to find the joy in the fact that you quit.
They’ll tell you to follow the masses, doctor, engineer by all means,
Not once will they ask you to follow your dreams.
Then one day when you finally make it,
They’ll be back saying they knew you would, fucking hypocrite.
Trust me they’re just guests, saying they were always your friends, blood-sucking pests.
They’ll say you’ve changed,
Don’t believe them, they’re the ones deranged.
Don’t pretend to be who you’re not,
They do that and stay sane by smoking pot.
They’ll call you lucky and walk away,
Ignore them, they’re jealous, don’t ruin your day.
Learn to be happy when you’re alone,
Because this life is a puzzle you can only solve on your own. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
