What Is a Friendship Worth?

What is a friendship worth?
Is it worth listening to the rumblings
of jealousy born from resentment
of the closeness shared?

Is it worth turning a blind
eye to the glee of that
surround us at the first sign
of dispute and disagreement?


Is it worth ignoring
the speed with which others,
in their frenzied need to denigrate,
hurry to add to our uncertainties?

 

Is it worth that
benefit of doubt that we
can extend to our enemy
but not to our closest friends?


Is it worth allow the insecurities
that dwell inside to emerge
and tear at the fabric of
love that has been woven in your heart?

 

Is it worth leaving the memories
of shared dreams and moments behind
on a field of angry words,
thoughts and actions?


Is it worth an unforgiving
heart that refuses to hear
another’s cries and will not
allow for human fragilities?

 

Is it worth the stubborn
pride that keeps us from
admitting we might have been
wrong or might not have understood?


Is it worth hardening
your sweet soul to the
pleas for understanding
from someone who once
shared your thoughts and emotions
on a daily basis?

 

Is it worth giving up
that part of you that you
once gave freely and with
love to another?


Is it worth forgetting
all the good in favor
of the bad?

 

Is it worth
the tears of God as He
mourns the anger inside
our hearts?


If friendship is worth so little,
then was it truly friendship?

 

Friends will sometimes hurt you.
Life is not fair. Life is not
always pretty.
Often without meaning to
we hurt those we love most.
And often those we love
hurt us, again without
desire or thought of doing so.


Understanding
Love
Patience
Love
Friendship
Love – and the greatest of these is Love…

 

Hearts that have been entwined
can never fully part.


So is it worth the anger?
The hurt?
The silence?
