A Friendship Prayer
Sat here writing my speech of acceptance
wondering which of my friends will
be there in attendance.
Working around workarounds designed to
Over flowing cups spill over friendships as
Pensively penning down plans that parties
involved will never uphold,
Floating peacefully into dreams we freely
sell to one another,
But this is family so we disguise our bother.
This is the family we chose, so as long as our
souls sing the same songs as we did in
childhood...na so the ting go.
Forever and ever.
