Author: Robert L. RevlandAdded: Jul 30 2001Views/Reads: 2128/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
A poem about friendship.

We are as different as oil and water, But we are not afraid of one
another. I am told to hate, and yet I love, Although my love is 

We are hardly from the same hemisphere. We are of religions that nobody
understands As anything but enemies, And yet we are like brothers. 

We have high foreheads and ill mothers. We have lived our lives in the
trenches. We share friends and foes and goals, And a friendship as 
strong as cement. Although we are so different, It is only our 
parallels that matter. 

To voice my emotions is my only wish, But it is as forbidden as my love
itself. People would ask why, Did I not have enough to love? 

True, people have families, Lovers and causes. They may have enough to
love, But I am not content. 

A friend is also to be loved. I love my family, My lovers and my causes.
But also, I love you.
