As I waltz through my life

whiling away hours, weeks,

years & even decades

I never found a shortage

of certain undesirable sorts.


There seems to be 

an asshole lurking

under every rock

& a bitch to be found

around any old corner.


The cretins aren’t coming.

They’re already here

They appear out of the mist

when you least expect them

always willing to lend a hurting hand.


There’s no longer any surprise

in finding someone new

only to learn they are not dependable.

You’re only an afterthought

they never truly care for.


As I get older

I find I have fewer friends

and more casual acquaintances

and that’s very much by design

as I try to keep my life real.


I’d rather be surrounded

by those relatively special few

that I know I can count on

than have thousands of false friends

valued at a dime a dozen.

It's best to keep your friends close and your enemies closer--casual acquaintances can be kept further away.

I hope

Hoping I don't have people considering me enemy and keeping me closer. That would really suck. I'm just a dumbass people pleaser who tends to lay down like a door mat.

and we wouldn't have you any other way.  Just don't let too many people walk over you.

Someday I'm gonna pick myself up off the floor and hang myself on the wall as a sign that says welcome home.
