Strangers vs Friends

When you have something to celebrate,
Or face something that you hate,
When you are bored out of your mind,
Or there are tasks and you’re lagging behind,
You know you never have to do it alone,
Just blast your friends’ phone.

They are the ones who cheer you up,
Stand by you when times get rough.
They are the ones you rely on,
When life makes you feel torn,
Oh, it’s so nice to have friends,
They are the world’s best presents.

But having friends can be scary,
You open up your vulnerabilities,
And friends forever is such a myth,
Those are rare, so offbeat,
‘Cause many just put on their mask,
Till they are done with their task.

Friends are indeed beautiful creatures,
But I’d rather associate with strangers,
‘Cause strangers don’t backstab,
They don’t know your crap,
Strangers can’t hurt you,
The way friends do.

    There’s a time in my life that I was scared of friendship. But subsequently I realized that who I am is an attraction of the kind of people that will be around me. So I think I was able to attract a true and reliable friend😁.
