perhaps only when you're older.
And when your dormant conscience finally kicks in,
and the feeling of guilt creeps through your soul,
I might no longer be here,
to make you feel any better.

I backed out of a payment plan on a truck my "friend" was selling me. I gave him $500.00 and only got $300 back. He keeps coming up with an excuse every time he get paid. He owes several people money, and now he is going to leave without paying anyone.
