True Friend

When you thought you could stop caring
for people who never cared for you,
but then realize you will always care
because that is what you do,
as long as your heart beats
and red blood pushes
forward and through
into your body
into your mind,
a kaleidoscope of care and concern,
your heart filled with the need
to hold everyone up, to make sure
everyone is okay, that no one is left behind
in life or suffering from strife.

Those who betrayed never cared
about leaving you there,
though you still do, faithful forever,
bearing much, a true friend
from now until the end.
