Something I Am Not
I value authenticity in friends.
Relationships for me run deep. They do
not crumble easily once strongly forged.
My friendships that are best go on and on.
My truest friends are frank, and boundaries
we barely know! We “let it all hang out.”
The good, the bad, the not so beautiful. . .
that’s how it goes between my friends and me.
Best friends can keep each other’s secrets too,
and when we give our word, we honor that.
It’s how I separate the wheat from chaff,
for something I am surely not is fake!
