We don't seem to choose who we trust, or who ends up being there in the end.
Not all your so called "real" friends stay, on the contrary, i find the "keeper" friends to be the ones that you meet or befriend in the most peculiar ways..
The ones you can call up at 4 am sobbing as you attempt to communicate what is bothering you whilst wiping all the runny mascara, the ones you pour your heart out too even though you barely know them and end up with amazing bits of advice and insight that others wouldn't have dared tell you, the ones that will watch over you through a computer screen as you slowly rant and complain yourself to sleep..
Life without friends is just another lonely race, in which everyone tries to prove themselves, get rich, or make it to the top; with no real bonds formed, no shoulders to cry on nor people to tease randomly out of the blue..
Life would be monochromatic, and monotone as we all go through that rat race, with no one cheering us up or helping us if we ever do slip.
To having people who care, right by your side when you slip up, make a fool out of yourself or stand and accept that big-time award...
Down with the ones that are just there for the perks, and for that free ride.
For one day, that ride will be destined to be paused for maintenance, and that que will sadly begin to empty, with only a couple "real" thrill seekers left waiting for the ride to resume..
Those are the "Keepers."
Ps. Not all the glitters is gold.
