How We Were Friends Poem by Richard Wlodarski

How We Were Friends

Rating: 5.0

How we were friends
Throughout the years
Some in kindergarten
Warm milk made us peaceful
But when recess had come
We became such rebels

Some in grade school throughout
We learned 'bout poetry
About number zero
And some arithmetic
Fought like gladiators
In Indian ball gym

Some in high school throughout
Protesting Vietnam
Fighting damn censorship
For poetry from heart
Being suspended for
Fighting against their lies

How we were good friends
Throughout the years
Where has the time gone?
The wars haven't ceased
Racism not dead
Mass shootings on rise

So many dying
God is still living!

Death could never separate us from our loved ones and friends if their memories are always in our hearts. Like what this poem has beautifully and tenderly depicted.
