Foes and friends


A foe- whose strength I remember.
A friend- whose weakness I remember.
A foe- who I speak ill of.
A friend- who I feel ill of.
A foe- easy to say no to him
A friend- hard to say no to him

    A foe hard to ignore but we do not care to his well being.
    A friend easy to take for granted at times yet we care much for his well being.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
