Friendship has multiple definitions. Mine happens to be letting your friend know that he or she is acting like a fool but still being there for him or her no matter how foolish he or she is ...what is your definition?

I had a friend who asked me for

favors of protection-- commitment.

Being a good friend, I obliged.

Being a good friend killed the friendship.

Definition: (in my opinion)

of a good friendship is--

unconditional support

even when the conditions are harsh.

Her illusion of what I should have been

was a mindless clone, telling her

that her every action was just

and genius.

I had a friend who in the best times

was the best to me and loved

me during my worst.

So am I wrong now?

I had a friend who insisted on

hurting herself repeatedly.

I told her she was wrong...

that is why I had a friend.
