There is a strange bonding
That girls share
When agreeing with each other
About their friend’s

There is a strange joy
That girls share
When joking about a habit
That would regularly make the person

There is a strange building
That girls share
When they tear someone’s talents
Because they, themselves, aren’t as

There is a strange power
That girls share
When influencing those close to you
To do something you wanted
But they really

There is a strange superiority
That girls share
When you leave a true pal
For someone

There is a strange success
That girls share
When they make someone cry
Although they say they didn’t

There is a strange beauty
That girls share
When they point out
The one
Out of a million traits
That makes you


There is a strange revulsion
That girls share
When they look back as adults
At all the friends they hurt
And depression they caused
Just to make themselves
In the end

The author's comments:
Sometimes it's hard not to talk about other people. Most of the time you don't even notice; it comes up because those people play important roles in your life, so they come up in conversation. And it's not always good.
Please, try a little harder not be like this; I am.
