(Written by Onyeche Vincent Onyeka and Emmanuel Chinyere E)
There is a moment when all turns red,
A moment all seem to halt…
…Around: but, joy trends and fail to end.
The rising of the sun awakens the songs within
It wistles choir cool breeze on a tender heart,
Then comes a ship for friends, called friendship…
One that sails through the tides of pain and gain
Made not for profits, but to enrich the soul within,
Unshaken by complexity or turbulent waves.
Unbroken by situations that may even arise,
No force or gossips can let it bend or dent
Nor take it steep down to the darkest of depth…
It floats, and that’s the feeling of joy
Friendship drags none into sorrowful tour
But creates good faith and aids against bad fate.
Even when it drains or rains in its train,
…Together for life, a true friend is invaluable;
Together for life, friendship has no price.
It’s beyond the ounces of gold on a scale
From the head down to tail, in reality or tale
Family is biological, friendship is chemical.
