Friends you can’t always count on

to be there for you in the hardest of times.

You can’t always spill your secrets,

your passions,

your worries,

on them like pouring a glass of lemonade.

Books are good for things like that,

more in particular blank ones.

You can write down your motivators,

your dreams,

your feelings.

Not by leaking them out

little by little,

but more like dumping them all at once

like the hurricane in Japan.

Then again, friends are good for another thing,

they make you feel wanted

they cure your loneliness.

They play games

and chat with you,

when books don’t talk back.

I guess it’s good

to have both in your life,

not just one or the other

But one thing’s for sure,

in the moment of truth,

they both give you the happiness

you need for a lifetime.
