A True Friend Is A Soul Friend

A friend in power
Is a friend lost
A friend in money
Is a friend with wings
I hold no friendship so dearly
In my hands on pecuniary gains.

A friend who can
But runs away
In dire times is an enemy
My friend
Is my friend indeed
And no one makes me
Their friend without my consent.

A true friend offers a perch
Of his shoulder to lean
In times hard
Friendship is not a ware
We procure per diem
With our cowries Or sweat
The whole shebang is a soul thing!

A very soothing poem to the subject matter, friendship! Unsparing but sweet in its trueness! Thanks
