"Better Enemy"

There is no better enemy than ones' loving family and friends
For it is they who know all the ifs' and where your troubles begin
No need to look outward but to only look within
The company of those that surprisingly come to mind
They who come around you either often or all the time
They say they'll support and stand by You _ thick or thin
Truth is they're only present _ to glorify your end
How else will they assure you'll see their smirky sideways grin.

You're prepared for your foes to come from where __ who really knows?
You know only heaven can tell what evils can compel
The force of ill-fate for you to partake
From their greed, jealousy, and hate
They're astounded by your struggles, your turmoil, and your woes.
All the pleasure earned and reaped by no better foes

Strange isn't it that when you crawl out from under your bed
No voices of cheers but sneers and jeers heard in its' stead
Ridicule and mockery, should haves and could haves ...
If I'd known better; I surely would have _
Not confide in most of those around me.
For the last thing, I need _ is a better enemy.
