Fishing with an old friend,
Reminiscing about childhood memories.
Indestructible waves thrash the boat.
Electricity fills the sky
"Never worry. I'll find help," says one friend.
Down the deck he spots a lifesaver.
Savior for
Only one.
Reaching for the orange cover, he wishes his friend farewell.
Fierce winds destroy the vessel.
Ominous waters engulf one as the other rushes to save him.
Eyes watering, his tears melt into the ocean.
Something catches his eye in the horizon: a second life saver.

The author's comments:
This is an acrostic poem that spells out Friends Or Foes. I wrote this as a comment on friendship and how some people give up it too easily. Sometimes, when we're put in difficult situations we begin to lose sight of what we have. Often times these situations cause us to think too fast when the solution just takes a little more effort.
