Friend Or Foe? - Poem by Abdul Wahab

Will you smile and then laugh away
Like a friend

When I brag and boast a little
To boost my tiny shattered ego

Or will you fire like a foe
and burn away?

will you tolerate
like a perfect gentle man or woman

when I talk big
give long dialogue

that I wish to touch the moon
and scale the highest mountain

all those I need
‘cause I am not like you big!

Simple man like me
Needs ventilation

To release the pent up frustration
which inside Inflating like a balloon

Still if you are irritated with my words
In your heart you get aches

Then there is something wrong
You can be anything but not my friend.

Should i care
If you inflate like a bread and burst away?

    A friend is one who listens patiently, observes keenly and only gives suggestions not thrusting his/her opinion. A very nice poem. (Report) Reply
