Friendship or enmity


Friendship or enmity
I have followed
And strictly allowed
On equal terms
The friendship and enmity in turn

Both have same intensity
With equal blessings from almighty
One takes you on higher peak
Another makes you blind and weak

Friendship earns love from art
Simple way of living as an art
Sense of belonging with bond
One always remains attached and fond

Enmity makes person zealous
The mind thinks cunningly and continuous
“How to cause down fall and enjoy”?
Such perception in mind always occupy

We must have friendship with purpose
It must bring happiness and not curse
Enmity must find no place
It has no direction to chase

Friends without friendship will do
But enmity may hardly prove true
It has place with us at all
Both are responsible for rise and fall

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
