When you are your own best friend, you don't endlessly seek out relationships, friendships, and validation from the wrong sources, because you realize that the only approval you need is your own.
-- Mandy Hale
Everyone wants to have friends at high places
but no one seems to know how close they are
just slightly above all those wondering faces
is their powerful friend, not somewhere far.
The higher they hold their head in life
the higher is the place of their friend
so helpful in their ambitious strife
one ever ready to understand.
We do so little to befriend that soul
boring it to death with our complaints
and blaming it for missing our every goal
while claiming to deserve treatment of saints.
Weak are our efforts to make strong that bond
with that which is very best within our skull
that can take us to victories and beyond
no wonder life ends up to be so dull.
They hunt for all kinds of outside treasures
not seeing the one that's already theirs
it could be life of countless pleasures
by entrusting a friend who cares.
On that playground of magic and power
nothing is impossible, dreams come true
so it's futile to seek a friend in ivory tower
befriending No.1 is all they should really do.
