I’ve Learned; Gossip
“Small Talk” written in 2008 – how gossip gets around back to you and then you get asked all these stupid questions like “so and so said that you did this, is it true?,” well friend if you knew anything about me in the first place you would know the answer to that. After my initial angsty tone, it becomes a conversation with source and it’s frustration towards me and my worry towards petty things.
They don’t care if you’re happy
They care what’s in it for them
Though you think you’re wanted
That you’ve discovered it
The meaning of friendship
Like you pulled it out of a hat
They’ll say anything
To get you going
They all have motives
And you’re only a character
Playing in their play
Playing the part well, I might add
So well in fact, it’s drugged you down
Full of life, full of potential
Think you can’t do much better
Their words are clearly lies
They wouldn’t live any other way
You should know this
Has life taught you anything?
But then again
I thought you knew who I was
So why am I surprised
You’re asking me these petty questions?
