Today, I have been having a really nasty time. The sad thing is that, it’s not bad circumstances that are making my day go badly but some of my so called friends. Just the other day, my sister was complaining about how she didn’t have good friends anymore and I thought I was better off. I really thought so.
Well, today, I have had a change of mind. I’m not saying I have NO good friends. I do still have some who put a smile on my face everytime but I guess all this is because some friends let me down today. Like we say around here, no be by force. Hence, the friendship pact.
Today I make a pact with myself
To make better friends.
Friends that are like me
But not necessarily so.
I promise to gift myself
With people that are true
People that are as kind to me
As I would be to them
People that want to share my joy
And won’t rest if I’m not sharing theirs.
I make a promise to myself
That I would say no to toxic friends
That make me feel less of myself
That leave me when they are off to have fun
That do not even try to coax me
Out of the shell I might sometimes enter.
Friends that do not have my time
That can’t cry with me
Can’t laugh with me.
Today is a new day
And from today, I make a pact with myself
That the friends I have
Will be the ones that will have me.
It’s so sad, I know but today is a blue day.
Ciao, Clandie Chi.
