Fair-weather Friends

March 21st, 2015 · No Comments


You might have a string of these types of friends, they’re called fair-weather friends. O you will enjoy some marvellous times together, when the money is flowing. When laughter beams and money is coming out of your pocket but don’t hold your breath waiting for reciprocation, you’ll wait a long, long time.

You see your fair-weather friend will never stand up for you, they’ll walk away, turn a blind eye and let you know, there is nothing they can do. Fair-weather friends never recall situations when they can solve an issue for you, denial and forgetfulness comes immediately into play…(I’m sorry, I don’t remember what happened that day).

Beware… these so called friends can land you in jail. Silence in the absence of truth can be the testimony that closes bars on you. These capricious, disloyal friends will walk away from you cool and proud, on to the next person who has more to offer. They will let you know in an instant how unimportant to them you truly are when someone who shines brighter in the pocket of silver and gold.

You’ll never grow old with a fair-weather friend, at the first sign of illness, they forget your name, a hospital visit, alone you will remain. Yes my sweethearts, be careful who you invite into your lives, they might be an ingredient that brings you to the state of an early demise.

Fair-weather friends reach out and take, they know nothing of giving, caring, compassion and that smile on their faces are usually fake. Be wise in your choice of those who you allow to walk beside you, those you share your secrets with., believe they’ll never take those secrets to their grave. Behind your back, these friends will cut you down, shred words you thought in private to the ground. O yes, they’ll laugh, point daggers and slice you to bits.

Be good to yourselves and do what you know needs to be done…Melvina
