Sacrifice Of Friendship


Strength in one
Strength in many
Doesn't matter at all
Either way is sure to fall

Believe in yourself
Believe in your friends
In the end
Its sure to bend

Bend it will
And still remain
But, soon it will break
No longer able to with stand
The strain of the hurt and pain
Put upon its wanting
Love for another

But, still it will bend
Though the sorrow and strain
Will bring unbearable pain

And though tears
For those who were once near
Will bring on the greatest fears

It will bear
Until it is sure to break
Even then
It will still bear it all
Just so another will not have to fall

The others who would fall
No not of this
For their lives are able to fill with bliss

To happily live
They are all to willing
Happily live they will
Even if it means giving and killing
The bender's great sacrifice of their own
Soul

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;
