About the Poem

I wrote this poem after I realized that my friendship with my best friend was over. We had been fighting for a few months, and then after a day in school where we walked by and totally ignored each other, I knew we could never be friends again.

This poem is so true i've had a ton of best friends ans some of left for stupid reasons at that. I realized just this year that i stopped hanging out with my true best friend we were not close anymore and it was all my fault but she was there for me when all my friends weren't but it's a sad poem but losing one friend always means ur getting another and that is a great feeling

This a great poem. Since I can't write poetry at all, that probably doesn't mean much. But recently one of my best friends and I stopped being friends, and I feel this poem really sums it up. Thank you.

The End

I turn the corner, and there you are,
While we both pretend not to see the other.
We keep walking, our eyes straight ahead,
And I'm grateful, as we pass one another.

We were best friends for one year,
A year of laughter, a year of tears.
In the short time of bliss,
We had promised to be friends for years.

But those ‘years' have now been altered,
And the friendship has lasted just one.
I know that it is the end,
This is a friendship that will not be won.

You don't understand why it ended,
Or that I didn't want it to.
But sometimes in life,
You have to do what you have to do.

This was one of those cases,
I could no longer call you my friend.
I now know it can never go back,
And I have to realize, this IS the end.

I really feel this poem because its sumthin that has happened to me not to long back. Sumthings are meant to happen others never have a meaning but u learn to except the fact of reality.

Sahar
it describes my own feelings toward some friendships.
Jessica
It's totally the same as me and my soul sister. We had a fight for months when we're nine, and throughout the whole year when we're ten, we didn't talk to each other or even bother to see each other. The surprisingly WEIRD thing is, we became closer than ever this year, when we're eleven.
samantha

Tori
That was an awesome poem. I loved it!
Rain
i read through all the poems for my assignmnet but when i came to this poem i was so touched by it coz i understand how the poet feels as this thing have happen to me. I have a good friend in primary school. After graduation me and my best friend went to the same secondary school but were in different class. I did not know why. One day i passed her i smile and waved to her calling out her name but she did nbot reply nor give any sign to show that she saw me . she walk away with her groups of new friend. I am hurt . We were best friend in pri sch n now. ? Does heving new friend means having to abondan the old ones. Did i did anyhting wrongly. ?

I LOVED THIS POEM I JUST STOPED TALKING TO ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS AND I SENT IT TO HER I FEAL REALLY BETTER THANKS VERY MUCH, KLARISSA
Samantha
I would have to givbe this porm an 11 on a 0-10. This poem shows exaccally what i am going through this year. i mean being in 9th grade is hard enought ecpeally without you ex-bestfriend, but i can work my problems out with someone new and she has become like a role model so ending a friendship isnt always bad it just depends on how you look at it
Rachel

Dakota
hey i do understand this poem! I have been in some of the same positions where u just have to tell ur friend that your friendship has to end. even if they didnt get it u had to tell them this. i have done it before and it hurts but u just have to sometimes. i have also had it done to me but i just took what she said and that was that. Dev, u r and awesome poet! this is a great poem.
Tracy
This poem showed me what happend to my friend and I in real ylife. It really ment alot to me and, I showed it to someone who went through the ame thing and he was like, "oh wow, that exactly what it was"
