Friends Poem by Hezekiah Tiamiyu


Rating: 3.5

Friends in times of sorrow,
Will stay and remember you of tomorrow.
The atlantic ocean with friends becomes shallow.
The bones of hardship shall they with you swallow.

Who if not your friends shall give you joy?
In your striving shall they also toil,
And their success you all will enjoy.
In silence they remain till you till the soil,
For they know you will at last get oil.

Friends are people of happiness,
They believe in nothing but togetherness.
Their hobby since ages is love and truthfulness.
Without friends you are helpless,
Your cry they understand and come to bless.

Friends will always trust and co-operate.
As close as the moon and stars they co-relate.
For those with friends I congratulate.
Some people are vexed to see friends celebrate.
But till Thy kingdom comes shall we jubilate.

Friends like my friends.

The poem has quite some imageries, ... Line 3 'atlantic ocean(means deep/big troubles) with friends becomes shallow(means solved/reduced) .... Line 9 '...oil' means success.
The poem was inspired by and is dedicated to my best friend Ayo Bella Mariposa Abiola

A fine dedication...Thank you for the breakdown of the lexia you employed in the work that in other languages might have a different meaning. I like the rhyme-schemeyou constructed...~FjR~

Friends...what can we do without their existence? Love the way you 'rhyme' and your careful choice of words.

Astonishing comments on this! To plagiarise 'words that tear and strain to rhyme' sum it up for me, it reads like a bad translation.
