How long should we wait for our friends, To come back to us? Should we wait a year or a day, Or a moment or less? If they are true friends, they will come, No matter how long we wait. But if they are false friends, they will not come, Not even if we wait a day. So let us wait for our friends, And I hope that they are true. And if they do not come, then we must know That they were not true friends to us. But we must never give up hope, For there are true friends in the world. And if we wait long enough, They will come to us.
How Long Do You Wait?
How Long Do You Wait?
How long do you wait? The agonizing silence. The dread and dismay you feel as you wonder what went wrong. The gloom and desperation you feel as you reach out to nothing. How long do you wait? The harrowing silence. Dejection and grief you feel as you wonder what went wrong. The sadness and heartache you feel as you reach out to nothing. The silence rings in your ears as you feel nothing. You reach out and grasp, but it is only figments of what was.
Gone We used to talk We used to confide In each other But now that is gone. Something we loved is gone Broke and gone Can we still call each other friends? Will you still be there for me, When our craft is gone, can we still be kind? But you made your mind up. And now it's over! Your choice, not mine! It's time for me to go.
For a long time, I tried to hold onto friends. I didn’t have many friends but the ones i had I wanted to hold on to. I thought it was a good thing. I always wanted someone to hold onto me, but as i have learned sometimes it’s best to let go. It is a difficult thing for me to let go. I still care, pray and think about these friends, but holding on sometimes leads them to pushing you further and further away. It is a lesson I am still learning and each time it happens, I have to remind myself of it again. This happens with family, as well as friends. Sometimes you must let go of your own sanity. Still, it is difficult for me to let go. I know that if any of these people came to me for help, I would help them. Would I let them back into my life, I really don’t know. It might not be a good idea for me to let them back in, but I don’t always do what is best for me. I forgive easily which is not a bad thing but forgiving and forgetting over and over again only leads to hurt later.
Sometimes Sometimes you need to know. When the time has passed. Sometimes you need to know. When the friendship is over. Friends pass over time. Friends come and go. That does not mean they do not care Cherish the times you had with them Sometimes you need to let go. Let go and set them free. Sometimes you need to know. When the time has passed. Sometimes you need to know. When the friendship is over. Do not hold them back, Do not make them feel bad Sometimes it is better to just wish them well And move on. When they move on from you, Do not fret, do not get angry Wish them well and move on.
As much as I give, I lose. As much as I care, they don’t. How do you know how important you are? Do I think more of you than you think of me? I am hopeless and alone, always and forever As much as I help, it’s never enough. As much as I love, I hurt. I am not important and never have been. To those I care about, they care little for me. I am hopeless and alone, always and forever. I am the one who gets tossed aside, forgotten each time. A new thing comes along.

Support (A Poem About Supporting Others)
Support I give and rarely receive. How is it the ones closest to you, Are the ones who don’t support you? Strangers give you praise and those you love Wonder why they should. Why can’t we praise people and support those we love? Are we only there to support, when times are rough? Why are those in your corner, not truly there for you? When they have so much to give when your cards are down, But nothing when you achieve your goals.
I Was Wrong
I Was Wrong
I thought they were my friends. I thought I was important. I thought they would support me, But alas, I was wrong. I cherished the memories, I cherished our talks, I cherished our friendship, But alas, I was wrong to cherish these things. In the end, it never mattered. In the end, it is all gone. In the end, I am alone.
To Keep a Promise
To Keep a Promise
A promise is something sweet, A caring gesture of friendship and love. Sincere thoughts and a heartfelt vow, A pledge of honor and faith. When promises brake and friendships shattered, You blackened your heart with lies. How far do you go to recapture that trust? What will you do to regain that love? The vow and the faith you once had, Why do you keep your promise when others do not? Should you mend something that’s broken? How do you fix the friendship all in ruins? A trust that is a dilapidated mess? How far will you go to keep a promise of a friendship long gone?
The darkness pours over my soul
The darkness pours over my soul As endless waves rush in. The rising of the tide pulls me in further. Pulling my heart and filling it with dread. I found myself caught in the tide, while my body struggles to be free. The darkness shrouds my existence, and soon I am gasping for air. The dark waters pull me down, filling my lungs with regret and despair. I reach out trying to break the surface, but the darkness is always there. Pulling me back, pulling me down to the depths, I plummet. The pressure keeps me down, night after night, day after day, I can’t see the light; the darkness is all I know.
