    5000 friends and not a drop of care.
    Its like being stranded in the
    middle of the ocean with no water to digest-
    Remember Water Water everywhere -
    and not a drop to drink
    Facebook is sea of friends,
    and when you need one oh well...
    Human nature kicks in...wrong
    impression and misconception.
    Just learn to be a friend-
    all that's required is a little
    communication without judging -
    a listening ear and a sincere heart- and
    the integrity to look for nothing in return
    Friends- Friends everywhere- - -
    Friends do not ask for or allude to asking
    for personal loans or sex on the internet
    5000 friends and not a drop of care...
    For you few who are sincere-
    Their are more like you
    Don't lose faith in man-but do not stay
    silent when you see someone doing harm
    watch the ones who tell you-
    your attire is all wrong-
    and you get to the party and see
    them flexing in the same one.

    People are people
    it's just you are not able to
    smell them coming
    use all the rest of your senses.
    do not be frighten just heighten
    the the ones you have-
    And by all means use your spiritual powers-
    -Ask for and use the SPiRIT OF DISCERNMENT
