Some friends seek to play a dominant role
this is not beneficial to our soul
'Cause it makes us feel less than whole
when things are building up to a toll.
A toll on us spiritually and also naturally
Yes it isn't healthy for we must feel free.
Free to be ourselves. not kept on a shelf
Look after your health, your wishes should be upheld.
A friend for life is one without strife
When you choose to confide, let your choice be wise.
Others want you to play a counsellor's role
this can really build up to a toll
They don't want your advice
they want to suffice
by getting you down and you wear a frown.
(instead of them, so to speak)
Yes freedom with friends is what I will choose
friendships are not for feeling blue.
This could be the beginning of something new
some make poor choices, why should this be you?
