i knew what the poet meant. Every time i try to make friends, it happens to
me. I trust them and they talk behind my back or lie to me. It hurts a lot.

This poem holds a lot of meaning to me because this has happened to me a
lot, unfortunatly! The idea and the meaning behind this is so true! I
admire Mrs. Parker for the ability to write poetry that is so utterly true
and meaningful for so many people in today's society.
