WHEN TO COUNT YOUR FRIENDS

Written by: JAMES B. MORRIS JR


Count your friends
When it’s dark and gloomy
When the clouds are gray and smoky
When the storms are heavier than normal- count your friends.

Count your friends
When depression has taken over you
When your back is numb and your demeanor has fallen
When the light on your path has gone off and you’re left with no way out- count your friends.

Count you friends 
When your image has fail
When your personality no longer matters
 Not when the money is like waters.

Count your friends
When you have nothing to offer
 Not when it is surplus to dish out.

Know me today, not tomorrow
Know me when I’m poor, not when I’m rich
Cause there is no second chance for selfish friends.
