Poem: Cherish Friend

Written by empressjournee

Some are chosen @ a young age

to be great, to be someone’s best friend

with a brilliant mind, a beautiful soul

to love, respect, cherish their center,

All the way, to the very end.

Some are chosen to be married,

To protect, provide, have elaborate weddings,

Diamond rings, pearls, and crystal

Ringing bells and keep ‘joy cheering, 

As they excel!’

Some are chosen to be a sacrifice

help those who are lost, less words spoken, 

By example, gives great advice,

Uplift one’s consciousness.

Some are told they will be

Rewarded very well, by the works done

Magnificently—like the mana bread:
I hope I am chosen to be one
Of them, who has great sense,

Always forgiven, loved by grace,

My heart be safe, and I am

One of those cherished friends!

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
