Friend Or Foe - Poem by LaTisha Parkinson

What am I?
Somebody tell me, because I don’t know
Am I a friend or am I a foe?

A friend doesn’t judge no matter what but helps
Yet I judge and cease to help
A friend listens to everything you say and don’t
And I do

A friend doesn’t lie to a friend
Yet I did
A friend always tries to help
And I do

A friend doesn’t tell secrets
Yet I did
A friend does nice things for their friend
And I do

A friend feels everything you do, cry when you cry and laugh when you laugh
Yet I don’t
A friend wouldn’t hurt their friend
Yet I did

What am I?
Somebody tell me, because I don’t know
Am I a friend or am I a foe?

What am I?
Somebody tell me, because I don’t know
I seem to be less friend and more foe
