shift

for a friend of mine


and life changes in an instant
in a fleeting moment
you just might find out
who you can trust
and who you cant
who your real friends are
and who they arent
and whether you will ever
be the same
again.

OMG! you don't know how much of a pleasure it is to read these words because this is what i'm going through right now...a "shift". (poetic snap) you're speaking the truth.
