My Friends


My friends here,
Are the shiniest of diamonds,
They are sparkling topazes,
They are priceless gems.

An annoying me,
Yet you all tolerate it.
Like a fresh-mown lawn,
Being dug up by a gofer.

My friends,
You understand me.
You help me,
And I am full of gratitude.

Thank you,
To all of you
Who helped me,
With comments and all,
To becoming a better writer.

I would like to thank the following people who have not only encouraged me with my writing, but also pointed out which places I might lack in:
1) Beach Girl - Fairly generous with comments
2) Goldheart Bird - The dearest sister ever
3) Alookh :) - The brother I never had
4) Alisha Alphonse - Kind, funny, and very, very helpful!
5) Abhishek Kumar - Kind, supportive, and fun to talk to :)
6) And last but not least, Mr. Khairul Ahsan - Whom ever so often comments on my poems, and lets me know where I have done 'nice', or 'not bad'.

Thank you everyone!
Cassandra J.

    The poem is sweet, the poet is sweeter. At such a tender age she writes so well. I have no doubt she will soon carve a niche for herself in the realm of poetry.
    Thanks, dear poet, for mentioning my name. It's always a pleasure to read your poems and also to comment as long as you want them. (Report) Reply

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
