Friends - Poem by Olusegun Akanbi

Friends are hard to find so be careful
Friends are like the wind
They blow to you when your days are good
Friends are like the storm
They pour sorrows to your heart
When your days are bad
True friends remain forever
Like a Redwood in the forest
That is a true friend
And I must be honest
Some Friends like you because you have something to offer
Some friends like you because you are like no other
Very few friends like you when you suffer
A true friend likes you on a summer or rainy day
He welcomes to his home and wishes that you could stay
The world will dance to your tune
When you beat the drums of success
The world will run away
When you stop to make progress
A true friend will stay
With you in your time of need
And he gives his last dropp of blood
Rather to see you bleed
A true friend will cloth you and give you something to feed
A roof over your head
If that be the case
It does not matter what is his tribe or race
The world is a market place where every one comes out to sell his ware
Survival is the yard stick so very few really care
Friends are hard to find so be careful
A chameleon can change the color of its skin
But a chameleon can not change when it has been
A dog is loyal to his master till death
But a bad friend only thinks of what he could get
Jealousy and envy
Fills his heart like a poisonous venom
When I was poor he hated me
Now that I am rich he hated me more
Away I say
Don't want to be your friend no more
