Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners o the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I’ve got a few missing. It’s okay though, because I’ve got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation so when I meet some one who’s an 8-color type… I’m like “hey girl, magenta!” and she’s like “Oh you mean purple!” and she goes off on her purple thing, and I’m like, “No, I want magenta!” –John Mayer

Theyre there when you need them
Even if its half past ten,
Friends dont hesitate to ask
Whats going on behind your mask.
They always give you a smile or a hug when they pass you in the hall And they help you when you fall.
Friends forgive you for what you do
And ask for your forgiveness too.
Friends are patient friends are kind
friends are there when you cry.
Some hold your heart in more ways than one
While others show you how to have fun.
And when your down
These same friends to cheer you up act like clowns.
Friends help you forget your problems with your rents
By talking about something stupid like tents.
So when you go go home and your parents ask 'How was your day' you can just smile and laugh.
So no matter who you are or where your at
Friends can help you to adapt.
