Deceit & Deception & Trust

Lies and deceit, it's all around me
Lies and deceptions, two bad surroundings

I see no point, I see no end
Those are your enemies, who you think are friends.

You see and hear it, find it hard to believe
They don't want any good, but only to deceive

You don't know who to trust, everyone's a target
The things they'll do so hard to forget

Deceit and deception, over and over
The chances of good friend, like four leaf clovers

They'll think you don't know or won't find out
But surely you do so without a doubt

The thing that's done determines your fate
makes choices for the best, better soon than late

Lies spread like a diseased infection
Life's just full of deceit and deception

I thought I had a best friend. I was always there for her, but I realized my best friend didn't need me when she's having a bad time. She won't let me in. My best friend runs away when things get bad. Instead of talking to me she runs away and ignores me. I told her I'm here for her all the time, but when my best friend runs away, my mind starts wondering if she really is my best friend.

oh my gosh I completely agree with this. I have had so many friends in my life but they are either deceiving, as you said, or they just disappear. All you really want is a good friend who will stay and be a true friend but with all those liars in the world, it makes it extremely difficult to trust the good people who deserve to be trusted!
