A lesson on friendship


The rhythmic song and dance

Was none other than a two-faced lie

She wished she’d seen it sooner

Before she kissed her other friends goodbye

Yet being young and immature

She’d only considered one thing

She hadn’t contemplated the cost

Of what alienating her friends might bring

She neglected what was really important

The friends who had stood by her side

And after the heartache was over

There was nobody left in which to confide

Some lessons are hard to learn

When we’re inexperienced and naïve

It’s often a very hard concept

For budding minds to even conceive

*Based on a conversation with my teenage daughter.  Growing up can be so very hard.  My advice to her… always cherish each and every friend, and never choose one over the other.

  1. Such important advice. Oh, the memories of being a teenage girl! Devotion is so much more important than popularity. I will need these words soon for my daughter. I need to store them up for the tears and talks to come!

  3. Glad these words could be of use! 😉 I still have 2 daughters left at home, and 2 have flown the nest. There are always long talks to be had, and sometimes buckets of tears to be spilled. Every situation is different, and it’s not always easy to know what to say. Thankfully my oldest two are well adjusted. So I must be doing something right. 😉
