A New Friend Poem by Dejan Stojanovic


Tell me something less significant,
Something about our biology, for instance,
About what you hear while sitting under the tree,
About lonely lions in the prairies;
Forget decorated generals;
Tell me about Private Ryan,
Tell me something only you know
And make a new friend.

    Tell me something only you know Beautiful thought and phrase that open the door to an intimate friendship, not just a mere encounter with banal pharses of everyday said by and to everyone. (Report) Reply

    To me this is about dropping pretences and not speaking just to impress somebody with great knowledge, just be yourself.Well written Dejan. (Report) Reply
