What is a friend?

Poetry

by
LaToya Byfield

Is a friend someone you love or  like?

Would you let them ride your bike?

Would you let him or her in your home?

Would you let them use your comb?

Would you help him up when he stumbles along the way?

Or would you look away?

Would you share your eats?

Or selfishly hide your treats?

Do you have belly laughs and cheer each other up when you’re blue?

When you argue are you completely through?

Do you smile when she’s around?

Or does she make you frown?

Does your heart feel light when he’s in your sight?

Does her presence make everything bright?

Did I make you think about people you know?

Do you now know who is your foe?

Some people think frenemies are cute it’s more like pulling a tooth!   
Who wants an enemy that is a friend? On that I will not bend!

An enemy is an enemy not a friend.

A true friend is with you through thick and thin and often makes you look within.

Jealousy does not compute.

A true friend will always tell you the truth!

Love, Laughter and trust, all of these are a must!

Without them your friendships are a bust!

To make those friendships true all of this I hope you knew.  
I hope you learned something today.

A true friend will never go away!
