Few Go Through Life - Poem by Francis Duggan

Few go through life without making a foe
And you cannot like everyone you do know
Though your friend tomorrow can be your foe today
And such is life as some are known to say.

Though our foes we may not profess to hate
Our enemies for ourselves we help to create
It takes two to quarrel tell us something new
And for everyone of us good friends are few.

True friendships often reach the breaking strain
But as a friend your true friend will remain
Despite disagreements your friend stays as your friend
The great bond of friendship in death only end.

We are only human and when all is said and done
Few can go through life as friends with everyone
And in your time of most need when with your cares you struggle to cope
Your friends are there to offer you support and hope.
