In this dramatic monologue Same School of Thought, JOCOSTA thinks back on the friendships he once had.
Jocosta: I do get lonely sometimes. I think about the friends I’ve had in my life. It’s tough because in one way or another each one of them stabbed me in the back. I’ve always been the one getting kicked.
I forgive them all anyway, so it’s not like I hold any grudges. I don’t. I just can’t reconnect with any of them because I know that sooner or later they will find some way to screw me over again.
I’m not saying I’m perfect. I’m not. But I am a loyal guy and I don’t break my loyalty for no one. Maybe it was the way in which I was raised. I was brought up in a family that taught me about staying true to those you love.
I have one friend. One friend in all my life that never did me wrong. At least, not like any of the others. But we don’t talk anymore either cause our lives are too different. He went his way and I needed to go my way. But I know for a fact that if either one of us ever needed help, we’d be there for one another in a heart beat. He comes from the same school of thought as me and we will carry that way of thinking until our final day.
