I was digging through some old notebook and came across a stack of free-form poetry that I wrote when I was in college. Yes, I dabbled with the poetic verse in my youth. I'm not saying that it's any good, not by a long shot, but for a person who was studying engineering at the time, the emotion still rings through loud and clear.
(Shock horror... An engineer who actually expresses emotions. What is the world coming to?)
I thought I would share with you a piece that was written in 1997.
Friendship is one of the most important things in the world. It forms the foundation of every lasting relationship (no matter what shape it possesses). Without friendship, you lack the trust needed to survive in this crazy world.
Your friendship is like the solid ground under my feet. It keeps me standing strong and tall.
