If friends were stars,
The one closest to you is the North Star: always there, dependable, and bright.
The friends that are good for you that you should have are the stars that make up the constellations: mapping out the events of your life.
The friends you seem to always pick are shooting stars: amazing one second and gone the next.

I can understand this and relate, but I don't think I have any constellations, and definitely not a North Star.

The description of a friend that you used is original and I love that about your poems. I wrote about friendship once in 6th grade except I focused on the people who are'nt your friends instead. I applaued you on another job well done!
