Spirit of Friendship

by Makayla Janine

Where do you find the blessings, when all your hope has perished?
Bad nights come, Good days go- and it seems you have nothing to cherish.
When you can’t provide for yourself, yet you are ashamed to ask for help.
Where do you find the blessings?
When Pride causes pain and our past won’t let us change.
So now God is not good, and our favorite excuse is being misunderstood?
Our thoughts incarcerate our dreams, and our worries are over –booked.
No matter what we do, we always feel over-looked.
At times we can’t explain what we feel inside, 
teary eyed from all the struggles that we bear witness of inside.
So how do we be a blessing, if we always feel cursed?
The lesson in life is to sacrifice to survive and keep our faith high.
The worst thing to do is to die while you’re alive. 
Your time is not up but you have given up, and in man or God, you can’t form any trust.
Yet For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, 
that is why these things must be done. Now what will you give? 
And how can you help; because we only change the world when we change ourselves.
We are not big versus small. Black versus white. Not even Rich versus Poor. 
God is no respecter of labels, and this is for sure.
We will pass away without being consulted, and were born without our own consent. 
Love thy neighbor as thyself is what God meant.
Encouragement and charity is the spirit of friendship.
Blessings only become lost once we are.
Always keep going, because Christ came too far.
Every breath, every day- Every Person can learn a lesson and be a simple blessing.
