Written about my best friend I have known for more than 8 years, and as my poem says, after one falling out she gives up on everything we have went through. She gave me a secret to keep from everyone. Who would have guessed that she was manipulating the very people who loved her to achieve her goals? She needs guidence, which I am willing to help give. Surely a person deserves a friend who will be there through the ups and downs. Is that too much to ask?

After 8 years of being 'the best of friends',

Atleast you were to me,

But with one falling out the friendship ends,

When you say we will never speak.

You gave me a secret that was really to big to keep,

And you knew that,

But nonetheless you said, "dont tell anyone",

As if you assumed that was my defeat,

My heart was crushed flat.

I am sorry if you feel betrayed and your trust for me is gone,

But the burden wasnt mine to bear,

I did what I thought was right to protect you all along,

Because bud,

For you I have always been there.

It didnt surprise me that you didnt understand cause you're used to those other 'friends',

Whom you keep more involved in your life,

Just know in the future they wont be there to help through the twists and bends,

Though I promise they WILL be there to bring you pain and strife.

I want an amazing life for you to live and to leave this town,

That you have been in all your days,

But YOU have to be wise, brave, and ambitious, and do things on your own,

So you can find your path and way.

I want so much more for you then your days here to fade away,

Which might happen if you never choose to leave,

No matter what terrible or good decisions that you have made or yet to make,

You'll still be the best friend I have had,

And if you allow it, might still be.
