BEST FRIENDS FOREVER〔永遠最好的朋友〕
Best friends forever, from class, come to visit,
to play, learn, and share secrets within limit.
confide and trust from young, only simple promise,
best friends turn worst enemies on wrong premise.
heavy burden hurts young shoulders, no longer fun,
cronies gangs into bullies, relationship damage done.
When young, best to throw the friendly net wide,
select the healthy ones that swim in with the tide.
Some of them will be your bosom friends till old,
childhood friends and classmates are gold to hold.
P/S : At a retiring age, friends and relatives die one after another. I confide to my best friend, do not die before me. He echoed the same reply. Having lots of friends at a very young age might not protect one against such loss. Maybe making friends with different age groups would cushion the effect and outcome. In hind sight, younger ones will outlived us. My wife consented, but not to mix with young lasses.. They are the ones that reminded one of youth and vitality, and females are generally more gentle than men. We have a chat group among our classmates. It is good, but, like politics, there is always an inner core and outer periphery, and can be annoying. Fortunately my short course in psychodrama helps me where to stand and position myself, and to be abled to get out and in again with ease.
