"I have a dream."- MLK Jr.

I don't know when we stopped being friends
When this bond broke and our connection dropped
I dont know where the best of us went and when I'll get the best of me back again
I don't know why we havent talked, why I haven't called, why we've stopped
But I believe this is just the natural order, I never get a best friend that outlasts a year
I know I'll just be lonely and all I have to look up to Is this constant fear

Of being alone

I'm sad this hasn't lasted because I thought this was different
I'm standing on the edge contemplating where all my friends went
Then I think they could have jumped, they could have flew away to someplace greater
I think we'll there's no time to waste I got to get going, it's now or never
So I jump, I tumble, I duck and roll
Weaving through the clouds looking forward to someone to console
Then I see the ground and I hit it

I'm alone

No ones here. You're not here.
And I know I'll just be lonely and all I have to look up to is is constant fear
No ship is coming to carry me home, there is no horizon, nothing into the west
This time I give up I have given my best
put it out put it forward
I have proven myself brave, courageous, foolish, no longer a coward
I won't climb up again but a year later I see the ground and I hit it

Bye Kidd. It was fun.

This was about my losing all of my friends and bonds all in one day. Yes, it's happened in real life to real people.
