AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is a poem that I wrote, and didn't edit at all. I think that it's one of my best ones. Also, my poems never rhyme.

The Friend

By Amelia Robinson

God, if you're there,
if you have the time,
I need a friend.
I know you're busy,
so I won't be that
picky. I just need
someone who will be
there for me and
help me when I fall.

God, could this friend
be nice and kind to me?
Could this friend shine
the light to penetrate
my darkness? Could
they love me always?
Could they cry with me,
love with me, and hold
me when I'm scared?

I know you're busy God,
but this is my dearest
wish and desire. I need
someone.

The Lord replied,

"My daughter, you already
have that friend who will
help you when you fall and
guide you through the
darkness. You already had
this friend of yours, you
maybe didn't see it."

"Who Lord?" The girl
inquired. "Who is my
friend who I long for?"

"It is me."

I'm so glad that you liked it!! Usually when I write poems I pick a topic and just write, and I almost never look back on it. This one is probably by far my best piece, but there are some others I might post. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!!

Yeah, of course, that didn't really happen, but you get it. I never really thought of that before. I just put it down on paper. Whatever pops into my head on the subject gets thrown onto the piece of paper. I never edit it again. I'm glad you liked this poem. It influences me to write them more often.

Thank you! I'm really glad you liked it. This poem I wrote about a year ago. My poems I never look back on. I just write them, post them, and that's it. I never edit them because I think it takes out the real flow of the piece. I write my poems in the moment, you know.

I'm really glad you liked it!!

I can't really remember how I came up with this, only that I emphasized that it didn't rhyme and it was a spiritual poem. I just wrote it and posted it up on another site. But thank you, I'm glad you liked it.

Aw! Thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked it! And yes, I usually prefer *reading* rhyming poems but with my poems, I just throw out whatever I'm feeling at the time. :) I'm glad you like it just the way it is.
