There is no String Left…

This poem is a special dedication to a good friend of mine. our friendship has hit a dead end due to lack of communication.I can’t really figure out the exact barrier to our communication since we have each other’s contact info and furthermore, we are schooling in the same college and taking the same courses. I think we have just developed a habit of ducking each other but am ready and willing to initiate a new turning point for the well-being of our relationship.

As for the title, I opted to use the word “String” in place of “Rope” since, in my own opinion, our relationship is held together by a thin string which is on the verge of breaking. I wish you good luck as you embark on reading/reciting it. I hope you get to learn a thing or two from it.

WELCOME…………

 

There is no String Left…

there was once a time

when we were so close

when we walked together

when we ate together

when we laughed together

such that they labeled us twins

but what of today?

there is no string left…

friends-care

 

there was once a time

when we would

enter the chapel together

and pray together

but what of today?

there is no string left…

friends-lift

 

there was once a time

when we would go together

to Arboretum and sit together

to read the bible together

and discuss our future together

but what of today?

there is no string left…

friends-love

 

now it is the time

for us to sit together

and mend our friendship together

for as it is today

there is no string left…

friends

  1. I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.
