Friendship (by Abdulhusain)

by. Abdulhusain Fakhruddin (Al Ameen Private School)

As I walked alone down the road

Hoping I'd find a friend,

One in whom I could confide,

And then slowly transcend .

Although surrounded by hundreds,

Not even one seemed to care,

For on that lonely road of life,

No friend could I find there.

Then I joined a group at school,

But their own friends they had,

They seemed to meet in cliques,

Which made me feel quite sad.

Now I had a different thought ,

A new direction I must take,

By becoming a friend to someone,

I'm sure a friendship I'd make.

Visiting hospitals and nursing homes,

I was made so welcome there,

Many were longing for friends,

Now, I could find friends everywhere.
