About the Poem
This poem describes what I feel that it takes to make a friendship work. Everyone has their own view of this but I tried to put it into some perspective using a box to specify what part of a friendship goes into the making of this box.

Build A Box Of Friendship
|by Chuck Pool
Into a box of friendship
To insure that it is strong
First a layer of respect
On the bottom does belong.
Then to the sides attach,
In the corners where they meet,
Several anchors full of trust,
Devoid of all deceit.
The height of friendship can be measured
By the sides of four,
So make them all a larger cut,
And the box will hold much more.
Now fill it up with courtesy,
Honor and esteem,
And passion for a dream.
Add to that your honesty,
Emotions joy and love,
And since they’re so important,
Place them up above
But leave the box wide open
So all can see inside,
To learn what makes a friendship work
From the box you built with pride.
