If I were in charge

I would make the nerds kings

And the popular ones pay for stirring the pot

 

Making people feel like they were nothing

When they were something

They were great but could never see

 

Because of those people tearing them down

They crumpled

The ones that were great

Crumpled by the ones that only thought they were great

 

They throw people on the ground

Then kick them when they are weak

Keeping knives at their sides waiting to hurt

 

My friend

My best friend

Turned into one of them

 

Her knife that used to be hidden

Now out in the open proudly displayed

She almost convinced me to reveal mine

I almost stabbed my other best friend

 

But she would have stood tall

Because she is strong

 

She never payed attention to them

And their tricks

She is stronger than I

 

When my once nice friend realized

That I wouldn't acknowledge their spite

And hurting and tearing down

 

She turned on me

When I was weak

With the knife in her hand

 

Spread all my secrets and betrayed my trust

I gave her so many chances

So many straws

 

For her to just waste them

Never bothering to see

How much I cared about her

 

And if she did

She threw it away

 

My real friends told me she didn't deserve me

But I didn't care

 

I kept coming back to her

No matter what she said

What she did

 

It never mattered to me because I kept beleiving

She would come around

She never did

 

I snapped

 

Ignoring her

Every chance I got

 

She still thinks I'm just jealous

Of her and her friend

Yeah right

 

I am tired of her stabbing

And stabbing

Everyone who cared

 

Maybe one day she will realize

Who and what she has lost

 

It wasn't just me

She pushed away so many

 

And now she wonders why

And I wonder

If she will ever
