My Best Friend - Poem by Njousi Abang

Who is your best friend?
Mine is a good book
He makes me laugh and cry
With a joy that embellishes my soul
And makes me learn and grow
In a way that hurts no heart
And causes no pain

My best friend can never betray
My best friend keeps the terms
And talks to me only when
I lift him up and open his mouth

My best friend does not tell lies
Nor blackmail me in order
To take advantage of my
Weaknesses and my dehumanized
Condition and its surroundings

My best friend does not disturb
My best friend communes
With me in total respect
Of the rights of my neighbour
He touches my heart and soothes
My troubled head which bears
The joys and burdens that life breeds
