I Will No Longer Dodge Bullets For You....
I have no answer,
To your maligned, self-projecting, accusations,
I have no mind,
To retain your lies, and aggravations.

I know before whom I stand,
Strong, and willing myself to walk,
You stab, and pierce, and connive,
I no longer offer my council, or talk.

You cover yourself in my crucifixions,
I barely breathe while you hide your face,
You are a coward, adevil, and so hateful,
I will rejoice when you lose your place.

You lead me to springs of poison,
You breathe division like unpolluted air,
I know He is just and watches every action,
I know he is just though not always fair!

Reanimate within me a clean heart,
Enable me...enable me to forgive,
I will no longer dodge bullets for you,
But sit back and watch calamity in how you live.

I have no answer,
For your hypocritical, loathsome, acts,
And I have no mind,
To retain your lies, I just want facts.

-Joe Kruppenbacher

Synopsis
It amazes me how quickly those you trust to be examples to you, mentors, or just friends, will turn on you and throw you to the wolves if it benefits them. This happened to me just recently, and though it didn't necessarily do anything damaging to me, because the people involved were my friends, and trust me, the fact that this individual was so quick to, "sell me out," greatly hurt me. Especially his motivations behind it. So I wrote this as a way to vent.
