Friend Like a Weed

I once had a friend,
Whose love was like a weed.
It grew and grew,
And choked the life out of me.

I tried to pull it out,
But it was too strong.
It wrapped its roots around my heart,
And I couldn't breathe.

I finally had to give up,
And walk away.
It was the hardest thing I've ever done,
But it was the only way to survive.

I'm still healing,
But I'm starting to feel like myself again.
I'm learning to love myself,
And I'm finding new friends who love me for who I am.

I'm not saying it's easy,
To walk away from a toxic friend.
But it's worth it,
To save yourself.

You deserve to be happy,
And you deserve to be surrounded by people who love you.
So don't be afraid to let go,
Of the people who are holding you back.

You're worth it.

Success! You're on the list.
