Offer Yourself & Show Up: On Friendship // Day 17


Photo by hotblack

There are days I’m not sure

Who to be friends with,

Like high school,

When I wondered if anyone liked me 

Or I looked good enough.

As an adult, living with responsibilities,

I push

The offer

Of friendship

Aside to find who I am

Because if feels easier,

Less complicated

Than texts, worries, and

What did she mean by that?

That is never an offer of friendship:


The offer, the give, and take keeps me

Awake and praying

For you,

With you,

Spurring me on to offer myself as a heart,

An ear,

A hand

On any given day,

The offer is not take,

It’s give and balance and we share 

This burden without back biting

And comparison.

Let’s SHOW UP more than OFFER, and be the friend we always wanted. Tweet This

Today’s writing prompt was “offer.” This post is Day 17 of 31 Days of Poetry.
