    Learning the Differnece.

    If my old friends where here to read this, I am sure they would have quite a different version of what happened between us, but they're not. From junior high school until high school graduation I had very few friends that I would hang out with outside of school grounds. These...

    for no reason. People

    that I have relied on and trusted suddenly disappear from me. I never know why, but it's like they just drop off the face of the Earth! It hurts because I never know what's happened to them. I've got three friends left, and I used to have many. I'm grateful, don't get me wrong...

    It started last year

    when I lost a friend because he got a girlfriend. Now I've lost nearly all of my "brothers" to chicks. I'm starting to think I deserve it somehow.

    I am a performer. My dear friend is also a

    performer. We both work in the same show. However, I am her vocal captain. I noticed that her performances have been getting worse and she was becoming lazy. So I had to give her an evaluation (per my job) and told her that the managers will take days away from her if she didn't...

    A close friend of mine doesn't talk to me much.

    He keeps me at a distance these days. Even when I call him, he is always in a rush to finish n hang up. He takes days to respond to my texts. I feel sad about it. So hard to let go people you care. Has anyone been through such? If so, wat did u do abt it?

    Different Ways

    I've lost friends in my life.  Some I've lost to death, which killed a small part of me at the same time.  Some I've lost to time, and I felt a part of me whither away as they whithered from my life.  And some I've lost to anger, and differences between us...

    Well looks like I'm done here.

    Rap just ain't the same since these ******** took over the rap game and they don't spit that well. I've lost my closest EP sister, JadedDivinity. Jade left for no reason, and she was all I had left. So it looks like my legacy is done. So farewell guys
