If you choose to stay when everyone leaves
Look blindly on my imperfections
Never judge my words or thoughts
Then you my friend,
Are a true companion
If you defend me in my times of need
Risk your life to save my own
Encourage my ideas to make them reality
Wear a genuine smile whenever I speak
Then you my friend,
Are like my mother
If you talk to me behind closed curtains
Think regularly about my lack of splendor
Judge everything I say or believe
Avoid me in my times of trouble
Then you my friend,
Are a real human being
If you think only of yourself
Trust no one including me
Wear a deceitful smile
Then you my friend
Are smarter then you look

I love your style, i.e. how you don't weaken the statement you're making by hiding behind vague metaphors. You have something to say, you come out and say it, and make the process enjoyable. I'm officially a fan =)
