The Conversation

A Poem by paleshadeofwhite

Child: And what does it feel like to have friends, she said.

Woman: It feels like laughter, and joy, and happiness and craziness and those moments, one would cherish for a lifetime because they are priceless.

Child: She smiled and put her head down and sat in silence, and she imagined herself having friends and being surrounded by friends and going to parties and laughing and having fun and sharing special moments that most take forgranted. Then she looked up and asked did you ever take any of them forgranted.

Isn't that sad for the fact that most children have the word "friend" in almost all their sentences. They see not size nor color nor ugliness, considering everything on two's or four their friend. That is until they hear or see the ugliness of the grown of us, who changes who they are.

There are a few mistakes here, but the overall message is still there. We all take our friends for granted. It is sad because I think the true love that everyone is looking for is the love between friends.

What a thrilling, well-spoken young child she will grown up to be with a woman like this to tell her that having friends will feel like laughter, joy, happiness, and craziness, I'm not sure friendship is all that. I know it sounds wrong, I love friends but haven't been opened to friendship lately or I must be confused about what it means. Teamwork though, I can dig that more, which for some people is probably amounts to an equivalent definition Thanks,

I capture moments in time through poetry; they are drawn from all periods of my distinguished life. The works are blended with mysticism, magick, spirituality, and dramatic style. With vibrant images .. more..
