This is such a sad poem, very heartfelt, very real and honest.  I believe all of us at times have either had a friend like this, or have been through the same circumstances in a personal way.  This belongs in the book and will certainly have my vote.  Excellent, my friend.  Hugs to you

I love the way this poem was written. It shows that no one can be perfect.

Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But never forget to remember
Those who have stuck by you.

I can relate to that for sure, it evoked familiarity and a well constructed piece

People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill t

I ought not admit this, I don't think, but  you could almost swear you had written this about me.  Except that nobody has ever liked me much and that I don't claim my life is perfect i just tell people I don't have problems.  I wonder how many figure out that I'm lying?  Anyway it's a very good poem and devastatingly true.

I don't know if today is a good day, or if yesterday was, or if tomorrow will be, but I'd like to think so.

Thank you teenpoet...I'm sorry to hear that you feel like this guy in here. Don't worry about people not liking you. The "everybody loves him" line doesn't have to mean popularity, it just means that there are more people who care about you than you know about. Well we all like you here at Passions so it's been nice to meet you. Well I hope you get everything figured out. Good luck!
