Friendship Without Borders
Is “Friendship Without Borders” an ideal or "gold star" goal?
Is friendship self-deception that’s quite cracked in part, in whole?
Integrity seems integral to “Friendship” from get-go
yet, friendship’s more mirage if it is only there for show.
If you’d have friends (with chance they’re real), then sack the gifts you’d gain
for ‘friends’ that bend their knee to you will likely bring you pain.
Some people may despise these views, I loathe some they hold dear,
but not enough to lie or cheat, I hope this truth rings clear!
Sin’s chill’s a rout! Step up to plate (your bat raised high) sparks fire
though you strike out my friend! The games afoot, God loves a choir!
Though teaching needs experience, all teaching brings truth home.
Most teachers find all truth they share sheds far more light than tome!
The better friend will share what’s loved without plans to impress,
will let wealth flow to those in need (unstained by such largesse).
It’s good to grok, most ‘joyful’ gifts require one to receive
(and that’s gift too!) Receiving well serves both (so I believe!)
Best friendships stand outside of gifts we give or get! Sweet treat
is more the role gifts play! Main course, of course, is when souls meet!
The truth’s that we all hate what’s true (that love dies we’d control),
that blessings flow to those that bless, who wrap ALL gifts in soul
(the gifts they give, the gifts they get) forgiving strings attached!
No strings are tied to Grace! Christ’s death remains a gift unmatched
(of FRIENDSHIP in its purest form), predestined to be yours.
No border fence restrains lost souls and home is through God’s doors!
