TRUE FRIENDS

Forever they walk together
Eat, play and read together

In their sorrows and bliss always together
They always favor togetherness
Never turn their back on one another
They always embrace unity and the spirit of togetherness
That is True Friends!

True Friends always keep each other secret
Never dare to mention it to the third party
All they care about is the sanity of each other.
They are never mouthy and cheeky
They are always ready to console one another
Encourage and bring to normalcy there lost friends
That is True Friends!

True Friends are there to rectify you when you do wrong
Aren’t judgmental but are ready
To show you wise side of them
They are there when everybody has neglected you
When everybody has recoiled from you
They are forever your true pals
Ready to wipe out the paint on you
And bring you back to normalcyNow those are your True Friends!

True friends are always happy for you
Happy when you achieve your accolades
And are together with you in the gala
Together you achieve your endeavors
And True Friends, forever ready
To give each other support
True friends are always there to pick you up
When you are low and feel doomed
They give you back up!
True Friends walks in
When the World has walked out on you!
Now that is who a True Friend is envisaged!

SURVIVORS!

Survivors are always heroes
They don’t quit.
At anybody and anything;
They don’t spit.
They live on whatever they find
So long as it’s palatable
They are ready to put it on the table.

They endure dictatorship
And are always ready to engage in Mentorship

A true Survivor is someone;
who has always won
Have the courage and the explicit confidence
Ready to challenge the new residents
In every competition, they are ever ready to win.
Whenever they fail, they never give up
Always have the positive thought of winning
And taking it in the honest way

True survivors are like the army military at war
To help fight for peace the most
They have given up their lives
For the sake of the people;
To help bring tranquility back home.
Hence, few are left to mourn.

Survivors are always warriors
Ready to fight;
Just like the bee is ever ready to bite.
In foreign lands and territories,
They are ever ready to work it all out
With their hearts
They are ready to survive the tribulations
Like students in the process of matriculation.

Survivors always walk with their head held high
Making many people sigh
And wonder at their audacity
Because they clear all atrocity
And the town and city
Will be ready to change and be like the survivors
Who have a lot of moreover!
