A Friend or a Foe?


In a world of bright darkness
In a world of awe
How can one tell
A Friend from a Foe?

If one does some good
At the end
Will you consider him
A Friend?

And if one always hunts
Never let's you go
Does it mean
He is a Foe?

In a world of dark brightness
Of shadows that glow
Can one really tell
A Friend from a Foe?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
