Poetry: Give and Take


For those who are used to receiving my typical posts, you will find something different in this poetry post. This is a poem that is a part of a Poetry collection that comes from a time of my searching.


Again, I’ve realized  something

and it hurts me all the more

of people’s expectations

and what true friends are for.

They’re  there to be a help

but not to be abused

in the friendship  must be caring

if the friendship is to fuse.

No outrageous  demands

just empathy  in the heart

keeping close in contact

no matter how far you’re apart.

But being far in distance

usually causes strains

loneliness in your hearts

an abnormal  growth of pains.

And so it gets harder

to keep the friendship  the same

a lot more give and take

more playing of the game.

Giving is the secret

just hope  they’ll give some too

that is the secret

to a friendship that is true.
