“Real Friends Remain”

Close-up silhouette of a man smoking a cigarette.

Walk away from uncertainties
That further confuse loyalties;
Veer away from trivialies
That only render inconsistencies;
Stay away from deceptive complexities
That merely blur existing realities;
Because, this charmed life
Necessitates no additional strife
And the ones who actually love you
Won’t demand that you pay your due;
For, they already know you;
Truly and deeply, they do:
The beautiful, angelic you;
The evil, ugly you;
The irksome, tottery you;
The faux, the lovely, and the blue.
An understanding sans any filter–
A silent look, a painful whisper;
No doors nor windows slammed–
A welcome smile, a ready helping hand;
A real friend sets no boundaries–
Your heart held, gently, in their midst;
So face the sniggering shadows
And never be scared of the lows;
Prayers get heard and answered–
Just call and speak the word.
