Diana Poems


More Friends, More Work


I always thought
The more friends you have
The better

I always thought
The more friends you have
The better your life

I always thought
The more friends you have
The better your life will be

I always thought
The more friends you have
The better your life will be and the happier

I always thought
The more friends you have
The better your life will be and the happier you will become

I now realize
The more friends you have
The less time

I now realize
The more friends you have
The less time you have

I now realize
The more friends you have
The less time you have for yourself

I now realize
The more friends you have
The more they add to your life
And the more they subtract from your life

So… why not stick to less when you can have the same amount?

    Diana, more isn't always better (particularly if the work is strenuous) . Better to pick and choose your friends. Well stated and good write! !

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
