Poetry: When You Are A Friend

"Don't walk in front of me… I may not follow
Don't walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend"
Albert Camus

Poetry: When You Are A Friend

When you are a friend to someone in need

You don't realize how far that can go

Until that someone needs your guidance and support

Being a friend is what you need to know

When someone cries on your shoulder late at night

When someone gives you a 2AM call

You a friend to that person

Because you did not let them fall

When you buy them a gift just to cheer them up

When you saw that they were down

That's when you are a friend

Because you did not want to see them frown

When you tell them they can find a better person to date

So you keep deciding to meddle

That is when you are a friend

Because you did not let them settle

When you did not want them alone on a Saturday night

So you invite them over the phone

That is when you are a friend

Because you did not want them to be alone

When you give them really big hugs

Just out of simple love

You are a friend you know why?

You love them high and above

When you see they need support

So you give a hand to lend

You are a friend

And you never pretend

When you show unconditional love

And you always show up in the end

You offer support to those you care about

You are simply, a friend

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.

It's a topic that needs to be talked about way more than it should, especially in today's world: mental health. Whether it be anxiety, depression or O.C.D. (or anything, really), we have come to learn as a society that it's okay- and even more beneficial than you think- to openly talk about experiencing what almost everyone does inside the complex mind.
