Talents of many a one have been killed and buried in our land, because they do not have wherewithal to showcase such to the world...
One of the commonest sayings all over the world is that "a friend in need is a friend indeed".
Many people profess to be our friend when things are rosy with us, when we are having everything easily, but immediately the tide of things changed for us and we started passing through trials, problems,on earth, those people will back out, albeit systematically. They will not want to be associated with is again. Some will even start mocking us, saying unprintable words about us.
While passing through such ordeals, we shall discover that there will be at least one person out of all the people we call our friends who will stay back. It is the person who stays back to support us, comfort us who are indeed our friends.
If we have not experienced such it means we should not totally rely on all those we are calling our friends now to be real friends who we can depend on.
Thinking about the word friend, I have put into song some words to show who a friend is, to talk to one or more people who have been let down by friends or being let down at the moment to know that yheh are now at the point of knowing who and who are their real friends that they can depend on.
The link for the tune has been shared here for the benefit of all humans.
A friend indeed
Sticks closer while in trouble
Such a friend is very rare
To find even on earth
Many who profess
Today that they are your friends
They 've remained your friend
'Cause of what they 're gaining
But when trouble comes
Problems and upheavals to you
All those supposed friends
You 'll look for and you 'all not find
Litmus tests for good friendships
Surely come when passing through trials
For it is during this period
That many people 'll leave you
But out of all friends you have
One or few will stick to you
Those who stayed by you at this point
They 're indeed your special friend

I was feeling sleepy but I received a message from your country, America, in my email, which I needed to attend to immediately, then I had to keep myself awake to do that and then your comment enters.
Thanks for your comment. I am elated.

You make a good point about a friend. The song is very good.
