Treasure Island

Friendship


Is a friedship like a candle,
Slowly melting away unnoticed?
Only burning as long as the wick is willing to carry us,
Until the flame meets its end in the hot wax?
Or is a friendship a circle?
Never ending.
Never dying.
Perfect?
No, no a friendship must not be like a circle,
For a circle has no flaws.
Continually going round,
Never a dent.
So what is a formidable comparison?
Are there none?
Is friendship really so different as to have no competition?
No, friendship is like no other.
With nothing to compare to,
How will we ever find our wisdom?
Experience is too long, too harsh, and too crude.
But I guess these are life’s requirements.

    I often wonder the same thing sometimes.. The best i could get was an Ellipse.... for and ellipse is not as perfect as a circle but it is still never ending.... so.. no matter wat we will be able to face the tide of the friendships here and friendships yet to come for a long long time. Great poem

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
