A Friend or a Foe

A Friend or a Foe

A Poem by Kim Jimenez

the first poem i made in my middle school days


Friends may come and go, but there were things you didn't saw;

Friendship always starts with hello, may also end up with sorrow;

Friends that always smile, may be friends for just a while; 

No one sees the man's inner glow, but who knows if it is a friend or a foe?


Friendship in disguise hides a millions of lies;

You thought their innocent care, may vanish to unexpected snare;

Friendship not that dear, shouldn’t waste another tear;

Friendship that will just grow, who knows if it is a friend or a foe?


If you still don't know, there were friends that became foe;

Friends that were hiding their flaw, just not their motive to be known;

Trust that you whole-heartedly braced, giving it would just be a waste;

In the end friends you will draw, who will still know if it is: a friend or a foe?

This is a great question to ponder and you did a wonderful job expanding on it. I thought it flowed very nice and you gave much insight on this question. You're right, we do know if the person we let it is friend or foe. N.
