Over the last few weeks, my eyes have been opened wide only to sadly see the true colors of “friends”...I wish I were blind.
Know this- if I consider you a friend, I hold our friendship in the highest regard.
I will never say something behind your back.
I’ll be a true friend and tell you when you’re wrong.
I will disrupt my personal schedule and arrangements to be there for you.
I will stick up for you when someone talks **** about you.
I will not use our friendship for my own personal gain.
I will not mislead you- only advise/observe and let you make your own decisions.
I will not be fake.
If I don’t like someone, I avoid them at all costs.
I don’t keep my friends close and my enemies closer.
And if at any point in the past, I’ve made you mad, uncomfortable, come across weird, strange, etc...whatever...I am truly sorry. Never my intention and honestly being perceived in that fashion is one of my biggest fears.
I’m just an honest, caring, sensitive and sometimes terribly awkward guy.
It just sucks knowing that smiles and hellos that I initially received are sometimes followed by eyes looking for the nice soft spot on my back for their knife..

Hi @Mario William vitale ... is this poetry or meant for the discussion forum?

I am sorry to read that you had a bad experience, but it does happen to the best of us.

The only ones that can really hurt us, are the ones we trust - the ones we call friend.

It's a 2 edge sword, but worth the risk when we've found true ones.

Don't let one (or few) discourage you (too much).

Much Love and Peace.

:heart:

The world seeks to absolutely devour people like you because a lot of people in the world can't find it in themselves to be those things you describe; honest, caring, sensitive, etc.

Like @Destee stated, I hope you don't let the often self proclaimed "lions" discourage you. There are worthwhile human beings out there who truly believe in the type of friendship you described. They are worth waiting for and definitely worth hanging onto.

Blessings to you.

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
Life is a poem, love is the pen.
