A Map Unfolded

by therinamartins

I was never the best of friend makers.

I was of few friends, a mystery to unfold. It hurt to see how easily others made friends and I didn't. I held secrets behind my eyes, I kept my thoughts to myself.

I was a lone star.

Barely glistening in a sparkling sky. I found myself hidden behind a barrier that never existed.

Until the day I grew up.

I found my value. I found my worth. I found the truth behind friends. And I understood that I wasnt hard to make friends with.

I was wise, though I knew it not.

I watched I listened, and I judged. Friends are many, but true friends are eternal. I didn't make friends.

I made best friends.

Friends I could trust in no matter what. Friends who would stick by me through thick and thin. Friends I could call almost family. Special, but rare.

My heart isn't cold, or hard, or lonely.

It's shattered in a hundred pieces, given to the ones who are worthy for my respect, my love, my honor, my friendship.

Happy Friendship Day!

Please share to all your friends, or, if you're shy, give it a thumbs up, and I'll be very grateful.

Thank you. I wish you a happy Friendship Day in return. The main thing I observe here on commaful is that we lay out our totally raw unpretentious selves. The honest is no longer and ideal. Here honesty is a palpable real thing. We may have all been the crucible at different times and places, but here is a place we openly share. the result of passing through the fire. We all have been wounded on the way here. But, here is where we meet true friends to give us succor. I know that I could ask anyone here to take my six and they would if humanly possible​.

This is so true as a child I didn't have friends either I was always the loner. So I learn to play by myself, use my imagination, be creative. But then I made new friends and they're the best thing ever! Thank you so much @therinamartins and happy friend's day to you!
