Dear Friend

Written by: Tenea Gibson

We were friends since day one,
always outside having fun.

As the day would past,
the fun would always last.

Until that day I had to go,
you held me tight and screamed no!

When i go older, i joined the army,
never thought it would be better for me.

I got a letter that said I had to go to war,
when I told my mom, it hurt her like a never ending sore.

you are no longer my friend, you're my brother,
but its a shame we have to fight each other.
