An Ode to Friendship

May 4, 2009
By Anonymous

I hear them yell every night, it makes me cry,
Sometimes it feels like I want to die.
But then I think of my friends and family,
Instead of moping around sadly.
My friends help me when I need them.
They make me feel as if I'm a gem.
Thank you to those kind peers of mine.
Without you, I would have been gone in time.

I just wrote this on the spot...
I guess the beginning of the poem is about a child whose parents fight.
I hope you enjoy it! :)

Simple and sweet and a tad bit sad. All the best to anyone facing troubles in the family. Stay strong.
