About the Poem

This poem is about a girl who has lost her best friend. She had tried everything to figure out why they have been fighting, but nothing works. She was always there when she needed to someone just to talk. But I guess when people get older they grow apart, sometimes because of boyfriends or family.

I wrote this poem, because I have this situation in my life right now with my best friend.

Friends Don't Always Last

I try to be nice, but you just laugh.
I'm not fitting in anymore, what can I do?
You don't realize, but it's starting to hurt.
When everything's just right, it always turns to dirt.

Help me, what am I doing wrong?
I don't understand, I'm there when your not strong.
I try to be happy most of the time, but it's getting harder now,
knowing your friendship isn't mine.

This poem explains exactly whow I feel around one of my "bffs". We used to be so tight, we had been best buds since 2nd grade and then this year she turned into a different person. One day she'll be my friend and the next she'll intentionally leave me out of things. I feel like I get treated horribly for trying so hard to be her friend. I don't know what to do anymore. I know all of your pain and I really hope things get better! xoxoxo :)

this poem touched me because at the moment me and my best friend are fighting. It touched me because every word in the poem is true i dont understand her any more so i left the group and it hurt me so bad but now i know that she needs my support because she has no one, also now i realise that i left my true friends to stand by her and she left me standing in the dark when i pulled her out into the light. but not anymore shes done the damage and cant fix that i do forgive her but she wont want to friends with me. anyways her loss not mine i now know who my true friends are and happy were i am now :) anyone that reads this dont hold a grudge against anyone even if there hurt u really bad trust me i know but dont cause life's to short i thinks its best to forgive and forget xoxox lainy
