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

somewhat synchronise

our calendars.

Over flowing cups spill over friendships as

though excessive.

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.
