Bitter Friend

I have known you all my life
As a child I barely knew your name
But of your existence I was keenly aware
You’ve touched my life in ways seen and unseen
And, I fear you bitter friend

My life is changed because of you
In my thoughts, my actions, and my awareness
You strip, you humiliate, you denigrate
You know no mercy
And, I fear you bitter friend

Lost loved ones to you
Lives laid to waste
Broken, defeated, ravaged
Orphans made ruthlessly
More lives changed because of you
And, I fear you bitter friend

I have known you all my life
Your name is known to me
I know your work, I know your face
My life is forever changed because of you
I fear you bitter friend.
