Friendship is a Prize

Friendship is a prize
That I have given you
I expected you to cherish it
To guard it as though it were new

Yet you have let it slip
And now it lays shattered upon the floor
I am broken and hurt
Yet, you don’t care anymore

I entrusted you with this prize
For more than sixteen years
And now you are getting rid of it
You are ignorant to my tears

You step over the broken pieces
And hold the girl you love
And yet, I still lay here
I wonder why I’m not enough

I’m tired of chasing after you
And making everything better
You only scoff and blow me off
Saying that it does not matter

You seem to have lost the game
I am ready to take my prize back
There are people who deserve it more
Friends that I don’t want to smack

You cheat, you lie, and you sneak
You just don’t understand
That friendship is a prize
I love you, but I must make a stand

I’m taking back the accolade
The love that I have given you
Friendship is a prize
And for now I must say adieu

You know, I had a row with my best friend too. And I wrote him a poem, too :) Its incredible, we feel bout the same.. I guess thats why were humans. Its great written :) Good Job. Did you ever show it to your friend? Because I did show mine to him. He actually wrote one back :) So if you're still in a fight, well.. maybe by showing it to him it'll make him think. ;)
