Losing Someone Close

Through the looking glass,
We judge people based on looks.
We don't see how they really are,
Untill we talk to them.
We try so hard to be friends with everyone.
We do things that we don't mean to do.
And then we lose are close friends because of it.

    Friendships can be a challenge to maintain. But good friends will look past your mistakes and accept you for who you are. Good friends won't let the small things interfere with their immense love for one another. Good poem. I think many people can relate to it. Top marks from me!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
