About the Poem
I was sitting in my prison cell and was thinking about what friendship means. And I wrote this poem about what I thought it meant.

A friend is the one who tells you the truth
regardless of the cost,
A friend will help you find the thing's
you'd given up as lost
A friend will never put you down
or make you feel alone,
He'll smile and try to comfort you
'cause together you have grown
A friend is the one who picks you up
when you've fallen on the ground,
A friend is the one whose voice at night
is a welcome, warming sound
So when you think you're on your own
and wish you had a helping hand,
Remember, a friend is the one who,
when you cry, will always understand
Because the world is full of people
who will laughingly pretend,
But, when it's said and done
you're lucky if you've got a friend...
