"And surely I am with you always..." Matthew 28:20

Open your eyes.
Open your eyes to see the tears behind convincing smiles.
Open your eyes to see the struggle of a friend.
Open your eyes to see the effects of your selfishness.
Open your eyes to see the hurt you’ve caused, the bruises you’ve made.
Open your eyes to see the apologies you’ve left unspoken.
Despite what you think, the world doesn’t revolve around you.
Your friends are hurting and you are oblivious.
Maybe you’d see more clearly if you’d just
Open your eyes.

My best friend was manipulative and abusive, this poem are the words I wish I had the strength to say to her
