Competing Friend Looking Down On You: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


In this world of shameless greed

with values holding a second place

the last thing that you may ever need

is a friend with whom you have to race.

Advantage hidden in a friendly smile

with that look no need to mention

as if she's going an extra mile

by giving you attention.

When friendship is based on conditions

setting for itself some high price tagging

we shouldn't feed such a friend's ambition

by playing an underdog with a tail wagging.

No one is really the only fish in the ocean

people of some value attract one another

tied in their friendship with a true emotion

as with fake friend no one wants to bother.

High-nosed people live and die lonely

with no relationship honest and true

using others as their audiences only

but those don't have to include you.
