Treasure Island

True Eyes


My Circle of Friends


I have many friends
But only a few are true
I have friends that I only say hi and bye to

I have friends that only come around
When they need answers or advice
And although these aren’t true friends
They play a big part on teaching me
About life

On the other hand,
I have true friends
Who encourage and support me
Sure we have our differences
But only true relationships withstand obstacles

They compliment me on a good job
And they send my spirit to the skies with their constant,
loyal friendship
And sometimes I just wonder
Why

Why God only put a few good friends
On Earth
For me to grow up with
I think I may have the answer
But I’m unsure
Because many things in life hold little security

But maybe true friends are gifts
Wrapped under a big Christmas tree
That is disguised in a scholastic setting
It’s our job to constantly unwrap each gift
To hunt for the ones
That bring joy and happiness
And to learn from those
That resemble the world

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
