Treasure Island

Sugar Bear


Fake People!


You tell them the truth
You let your secrets fall right through
You accept them in your pack
Then you mistake they’ve got your back
Oh, you know we all do it too
Misjudge them as “cool”
Somebody you think you should talk to
About your problems
About that controlling boyfriend
You think they’re true
Until they turn on you

Fake people, manikins everywhere
See your secrets filling in the air, they stare
They glare, they all look at you
You want to run away to the place you feel you can be real
Past them, ignore their eyes
Their looks of thrill is hypnotized
Hurry, toss that penny in that wishing well
And pray for God to reveal
Which people are real

Fake people, we don’t know who to trust
We think we do, but now we’ve have enough
We can’t stop hiding
I guess we’ll just trust nobody
And it hurts, to see your friends the same
As the fake ones playing along with their silly games
Just laughing, and whispering secrets in each others ears
Now they see you, and they want to be friends
They’re just going to neglect you in the end
Face your fears, hide away your tears

They only want to run over you
“Let’s be friends.” It’s fake don’t let them disguise the truth
They’re fake! The people you thought you could trust
They’re fake! Stand up and say you’ve enough
When the world knows everything you said
From a friend to friend, they swear their hearts
They won’t tell a soul or let it fall apart
Now it seems, your friend should be lying dead
Instead
Of you! Being embarrassed a time again
She told that guy you liked him and, .. he laughed
And they laughed
And she laughs
Now you’re mad.

Fake people, manikins everywhere
See your secrets filling in the air, they stare
They glare, they all look at you
You want to run away to the place you feel you can be real
Past them, ignore their eyes
Their looks of thrill is hypnotized
Hurry, toss that penny in that wishing well
And pray for God to reveal
Which people are real

Hurry, don’t waste your time
Remember they’re the ones who lied
Who said they cared, then later talk behind your back
Get mad! Go ahead attack!
Make sure they know who’s going to get the last laugh
That snitch!
Keep in mind, Revenge’s a Bitch

Past them, ignore their eyes
Their looks of thrill is hypnotized
Hurry, toss that penny in that wishing well
And pray for God to reveal
Which people are real

Don’t tell them your secrets anymore
If they ask for a ride, just shut the door
Roll that window up, and press IGNORE
Real friends, wouldn’t give you up
They’d be the one smiling, cheering you up
Just take a second to think
Which of my friends are true to me?

If you have to, rip that photo up
Tear it in half, and leave it in their truck
Let them know, that they screwed up- not you
Leave them with that attitude!
Let them cry, or hate your appearance
Go ahead and spread all of their secrets
Don’t think you’re equaling up to them
Remember it’s defend
But would a true friend let a true friend fall?
If they’re not true to you, then don’t give a damn at all!

    Dear Sugar Bear,

    I love your poem but the first time I read it, it wasn't under your name.. Your poem has been plagiarized by someone named Shruti Suresh on her facebook notes. Yours is one among many and what she's doing is illegal. Please make sure your work is protected and try and stop people like her if you can! You have every right!
