Julius Babarinsa Poems
Who Is Your Best Friend?
Everybody needs friends, we all have friends
Some friends are closer to us than our families
If we happen to fall, there are friends to pick us up
What will our life be without friends?
There are many categories of friendship
There are casual friends, bad friends and good friends
The question here is – who is your best friend?
Friends who can turn your tears into laughter
Is your wife your best friend?
I mean the friend you go to
When you need honest advice
Is your husband your best friend?
I mean the friend who knows you
More than you know ...
On Keeping Promises
He let me down once, she too disappointed me before
These are remarks nobody is happy to hear
It is generally said – promise is a debt!
Have you ever reneged on a promise?
Failure to keep a promise demonstrates that
You are unreliable, untrustworthy, erratic,
Inconsistent, undependable and unpredictable
It is far better not to make any promises
Than to make a promise and renege on it
