Once Friends

I wish that I could take it all away, but it's done.
We were the best of friends, everything we did was fun.
Now it's not the same since you became cool with the in-crowd.
Now you're ashamed of me; you want me to be like you, but I'm too proud.
I wish that you weren't so stuck-up and would come back to reality.
You wanted to be so popular that you dissed your own nationality.
Now that you got your wish, do you still think you made the right choice?
Remember that we once were friends, you always told me that I had a voice.
But what about now, you don't even speak up, you're too scared.
They might find out who you are and boot you from your position and not care.
With all that said and done, our friendship is left in the past.
But who will you have to come back to when being popular just doesn't last?

My friend was a transferee from other schools. By now we were best friends for about 2 years, but when she became friends the popular students, she became bad, greedy. Always commands me like a maiden and always flirty with other boys....I thought we were BFFs? But sorry this day is our end!!!

I was always told true friends will stand by you when your wrong or right and a fake friends ditches you as soon as you are wrong I would never give up my friends for the popular kids I have friends that will stand by me. Not cause I am pretty, not cause I make them, not cause I act like I am gangster but because I will always be there for them through thick and thin and whether they need help or not I am there to offer it
I was raised that way
love you p-ville people and have a nice day everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
