The Rescued

I know you have them in your life, the ones who need you to rescue them. Hands out ready to snatch your last dollar, but won't give you two pennies to scratch together.

They use you to dodge bullets, but have no sympathy when you get hit.

The ones who only call when it benefits them.

They don't weather the storm with you, they let you get wet.

Don't save them, save yourself. Cry no more tears for them, but have mercy.

Ask God to remove them, let him be your life jacket, swim to shore.

Focus on YOU now.
