By Marymartin Okoabu:
Friendship is like flowers,
It adds beauty to life,
But if not cared for,
Can wilt and die.
Friends are like diamonds,
But if not valued,
can be stolen from you.
Moments with friends are dazzling,
Awakening a bubble of emotions that shoots up laughter,
Illuminating darken parts of our minds,
Creating a sparkle that lighten our moods.
Never trade friendship for isolation,
Do not buy friends with wealth or deceit,
But rather earn them,
With that smile and free mind.
