Choose Wisely

Do not fall quickly into friendship's grasp
Do no be too eager for a hand to clasp
You may find yourself too soon bothered and harassed
And come to wish that friend had been recast

Good friends are hard to come by this everyone knows
It's best to be cautious with whom your arms seek to enclose
Be careful to whom your secrets you choose to disclose
You may too soon wish there was someone else you chose

It is wise to use discretion when picking a new friend
You want someone who will be with you until the very end
Someone with whom lots of time you cheerfully spend
Someone on which you no have doubt you can depend

Friendships can be easy to get into but hard to maintain
Will they be there for you to guide you through your pain
Will they listen to your problems when you want to complain
Trust me, the wrong friend can most assuredly drive you insane!

    Great poem! Great advice! Thanks for sharing. I know on at least one occasion that I have regretted befriending someone.

    Love the title; made me think of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" when the old knight told him to choose a chalice (Holy Grail) wisely. Great poem about friendship and you've penned many truths here. Great job! :)

    Boy is this wise advice! Friendships slow to mature are the ones that remain though out life, that is most of the time. A great poem April.
