A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same. – Elbert Hubbard


the Evolution of Friendship
written by Kendall F. Person, thepublicblogger

Born wide eyed with a screaming cry
emitting from your soul.
Womb’s comfort left behind
a new world
frightening, cold, but alive.
A mother’s touch, calming.
A father’s strength, secure.
Brothers and sisters, friends they are to you.

Years  go by, off to school,
scared at first, a smile reassures,
friends live here too.
They come and go, laugh and cry.
Most we leave behind,
only a few, move and grow with you.
A click, a gang, a backbone, all the same.
Friendships are formed, bonds created,
a necessity to dodge minefield of  teenaged years.

Adulthood, friendships are tested.
Some snap, most break.
Stress, freedom, ability to live life by rules we create.
Best friends forever, go separate ways.

Families of our own.
