When The Cock Crows

 

 

 

 

 

Those words he spoke still ring in my ears

Echoing my innermost still festering fears

“If you leave me you’ll be alone without friends

Because the ones you look up to

Won’t care once all this ends

They’ll turn their backs and walk away

They’re not the kind who’ll stay

They won’t want to make any sacrifice to see it through

So they’ll all turn their backs on you.”

I didn’t believe him, told him he was wrong

I believed I still had a place to belong

But sadly, it turns out the snake was right

And just like him, reality has a nasty bite

I never would have believed what I’d been told

Didn’t think anyone’s heart could really be that cold

But it seems some people fake it so well

You just can’t see

They aren’t the way they pretend to be

Their hearts are hard

Though they politely say all the right things

Not seeming to comprehend

The hurt their callousness brings

Too worried about how they look to others

Their appearance

Being about all their small heart covers

That they can ignore the broken hearted in their need

Betrays their hearts are too empty even to bleed

They expect kindness, understanding and care

But when it comes to giving it

Their shallow hearts are bare

I never would have believed that I’d see the day

Years of kindness and friendship

Could be so quickly tossed away

I stood by them through thick and thin

Put myself out and took them in

I didn’t listen when the gossips my ear would bend

I defended them, determined to be a friend

I cried with them, played the clown to make them laugh

But it seems it just wasn’t enough

Not enough to make them care

Not enough to have them want to be there

Instead malicious gossip was adopted as truth

Fiery feathers scattered, without thought or proof

A jealous, spiteful, witch hunt

An unfair war without a front

So I’m still living this nightmare not of my making

I’m still giving, while the vultures are taking

Just can’t understand what I did

To make them so hardened

Because any sin they could’ve committed

I would’ve pardoned

Hurt more than I know how to express

They obviously were not

‘A brother born for the time of distress’

Still, there are one or two

Who have been uniquely loyal, loving and true

But as for all the fickle, the popular, the rest

They just didn’t pass test

Although I can’t even tell you when they turned to go

I’ve certainly heard that Cock crow

But I refuse to let them change me

I refuse to accept this is how it’s always going to be

I hope one day those frozen hearts will thaw

And melting, begin to bleed

Those closed minds will open to see and feel another’s need

That scales will fall from blind eyes, and finally they will see

How true friends should really be.

This night before a cock crows twice

Even you will disown me three times.”

Your friends do not need it

And your enemies will not believe it anyway”

Is no guarantee against misfortune”
