Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about friends. It is for her book Martha. Cheers!
I want to tell you everything.
But how can I friend?
I first have to know how you’ll react.
My secrets are so dark.
It will help me heal to tell you.
Do I dare? Will you protect me when you know?
Will you keep my secret?
Do I dare?
I know you to be a compassionate person.
I know to trust you to a certain degree.
This will test out friendship.
Yes I dare. In God I trust.
Yes I dare. Please be worthy!
