The closest people to you, 

could be the ones who lie the most 

yet expect to receive the same loyalty you show them. 

It’s how you end up hurt- another lesson, yet to learn. 

How do you expect to learn from your mistakes 

when you settle for less than what you deserve? 

And of course, its ok to make mistakes 

but when will you understand some mistakes just shouldn’t be made?  

(Or at least twice I should say)… 

I know you don’t want to be hurt, or even feel that pain 

and I completely understand because I feel the same way.
