New Friends New Choices

Updated on July 13, 2011

I For One Love New Friends

Life can be a very difficult place to understand and live

When we realize we have a friend with an open ear everything seems more clear

Struggling from time to time with personal issues life can seem unbearable

A true friend can hear your cries and understand as they listen intentivley close by

Not saying a word by letting you talk and ramble on if need be

You feel better and a friend takes you under their wing

To guide you slowly in a more positive direction and so you can see hope

Not changing your life because only you can do that when the time is right

When events in your life get so overwhelming that you are sad more times than you are happy

It is time to change friends and get some new ones that will help you feel better than you have ever felt

When all is said and done and you are sitting home alone

You should be proud of who you are and what you have accomplished in your life

If you need changes then it is up to you do make them

Friends are a guide but even guides have been wrong from time to time

If you look around you and see a world of shame and disgust

Look again because the same world has endless beauty and trust

When you turn to God for answers and get silence

It is not because God is not listening it is because God is your best friend

So look around you and all the friends you have

Have many laughs and enjoy all the good times that you make possible

When it comes to studying and learning you are on your own again

So you are the one who can judge the best

Is this friend someone who you will want to be there through thick and thin and share all of lifes happiness and joy?

There are so many people in the world and look close for those you call friends

Some people are just friends now and then

Other people are friends in the good times only

We have to understand friends have to be themselves and you don't ever want to change a friend

Then there are those people who will do anything to see you happy

They are the ones that have made friends as wonderful as they are

To all my friends I thank you for your time and sincerity

      Wow this is so true. It's amazing sometimes how when you catch yourself with a really negative attitude and start doing some inventory realize that's all the input your allowing. I have acquaintances and true friends that no matter what I'm going through help me to see light at the end of the tunnel

      Awesome and voted all the ups

      Leptirela I found in time peoples real colors come through so we can all tell who is who.We have to be aware of who they are and who we think they are.But never stop believing in true friends.Thanks so much.

      There should come a time in everyone's life when they wake up and choose their friends wisely. I think 50% of the time people will do this and the other 50% would rather deal with and entertain the friends that they have been for whatever reason. True friendship is extremely important to me, I consider friendships the same way I look at life and death. We either LIVE as true friends or the relationship has to die. I don't see the need for half ass friends or friendships. At the end of the day some people get it and some don't! I guess that's what keeps this crazy world turning. Nice hub!
