True Friend Poem

Poem About Qualities Of Friendships

I'm a 14-year-old girl living in Alberta, Canada. This poem was written on a day when I was reminiscing memories of my friends. They were both unsure of the schools they were going to attend in grade 10, and this had torn me apart. Just the thought of not seeing them every day in the morning hallways was an unimaginable idea because things just don't work like that! My poem shows my immense appreciation that I have for these 2 amazing people in my life, and I feel that it describes our relationship perfectly.

Ode To Friendships


Published: May 2015

They're the few people who accept silence over conversation
A relationship like this denies silly promises and persuasion
You don't feel the need to second guess thoughts or measure words
Their love comes in wholes, not halves, not thirds
They're the ones that guide you through when fate takes a turn
Fights, small and large, end in forgiveness, never a burn
You forget about first impressions and the feelings they brought
You're grateful for who they are and you forgive 'em for what they're not

I am a 7th grader. Today is one of my best friend's birthdays. We call each other twins because we will be best friends until the day we die. Happy birthday, Jacoya. I love you like a sister I never had.
