haiku to live by, or not

It’s really so hard?
please put the toilet seat down
you could fall in too

friends who don’t listen
aren’t really friends at all
stop kidding yourself

as if it solves things
people say “this too shall pass”
sometimes it doesn’t

wanting to belong
how I used to choose my friends
alone is better

words are not the truth
don’t believe what people say
look at what they do

listen to your friends
even when it’s trivial
you might bore them too

every choice you make
is a moral decision
put toilet seat down
