:) Friendship's Costs - Poem by Bill Grace

Friendships costs are many but the greatest pain is
Discovery of friend as counterfeit: lover, wife, acquaintance,
class mate, colleague - it matters not
Made of convenience, self, organizational need, usery:
The thousand softer metals that never stay the wear of time,
The least alluring often proving best.

Be careful in belief of this word - friend.

    Lovely piece of poetry written with insight. A Friend-Indeed is a rare gem, very difficult to find. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
