Friction can be summed up by the care of one’s teeth,
What happens on the surface, can affect what’s beneath,
Teeth need attention, during nighttime and day,
When not cared for well, you’ll see signs of decay.
And with it, the pain; bleeding gums; cavities;
Losing your teeth’s one likely tragedy;
Bad breath; sensitivity; are some other outcomes,
Take care of your pearly whites, or end up without ’em.

Friction is no joke, whether it’s a friendship; relative; team mate; someone you’re in a relationship with; or something else; if you let it fester or actively cause the decay, you can’t turn around and say that you gave a damn about seeing them smile, or wanted the bond to truly blossom.
The main thing that’s needed to keep a bond strong is reciprocity, but when someone has your back and you don’t have theirs, it can come across as plain rude. Also, if you can’t handle the truth when it’s presented to you with no malice, then you can’t claim to value honesty.
Truth be told, some people like their fake grillz, in order to mask the fact that they lack the ability to fully care for something other than themselves, and when they do seem to care, it comes with conditions like pay day loans (hundreds or thousands of percent worth of interest).
So, to those people who seem to revel in decay, despite the sincere efforts of others, all we can say is… enjoy your false teeth, and don’t forget to stock up on denture adhesive cream, or brace yourself for screw-in teeth, because the real ones are outta here, peace!
Love and Respect always,
