Times like these,
people show their true colors:
Some people pop right out
of the woodwork,
others disappear into scenery...
Still others speak honestly
as though they saw
something I missed,
but wished and hoped to be wrong...
And yet, they gloat
to know their hunches were right...
And those with guarded words
take leave to be bold
confirming suspicions long held
There is a light beyond this tunnel
even if I can't quite see it yet
Good friends are hard to come by,
and I remain blessed to have
(I love you guys!!!!!!)
