The Strength Of A Bond - Poem by Shelbie Hale

Once upon a time, I longed to just be me
Though exclusiveness was all I could see

Times were so bad, nothing ever went right
I always thought I'd never have a reason to fight

But there is always good, no matter how bad
I know this now from all the good times I've had

Nothing can compare to all the friends that I've made
I enjoy being with them, throughout all those days

Togetherness is a jewel that sparkles and shines
One we should hold dear in our hearts and our minds

I watch from afar, with a contented smile so bright
Like city lights piercing the darkness of night

It's such a truly wonderful sight to behold
Now I am sure that my dreams will not fold

Nowhere else in the world would I rather be
Never in my life have I felt so free

I managed to find so much joy in this life
After dealing with so much anger and strife

Late at night when I look up at the stars
You know I always feel it in my heart

Like a song forever ringing in my ear
That carries on throughout the years

After all the mountains we've climbed and will climb
I've no doubt that our bond will stand the test of time

Topic(s) of this poem: dreams, freedom, friendship, together

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I think I actually wrote this poem early on in my junior year of high school, but I never showed it to any of my friends there until near the end, because they're the ones I dedicated it to.
