"You don't have a soul, you are a soul. You have a body" - CS Lewis


These simple words I said that day
When I had made the choice to stay
To stay and wait for a friend of mine
Who was not having a good time.

He said to me, 'you didn't have to'
But it was something I had wanted to do
A simple act to show a friend
I'll do my best until the end
And so I turned my head to say,
'But I did anyway.'


The author's comments:
A very dear friend of mine was having a rough day at school, once. I had waited for him after class, but that turned out to be a better way to show my friendship than I thought.

See the animal in his cage that you built. Are you sure what side you're on? What if everything around you, Isn't quite as it seems? What if all the world you think you know, Is an elaborate dream? -Nine Inch Nails

I really liked it, sometimes poems don't need to be long, or very rich in description, because in reality, it is the action that matters, and that's what you showed through this poem. Keep up the good work! (And please comment on the song lyrics I wrote, (The daily life of a cog) I am craving feedback, even if negative

But walk beside me and just be my friend."
