A Friend Indeed
As close to me as any one of my own kin.
The one who will protect me from any attack,
The kind of friend who forever has my back.
The person who will not agree to spare my feelings,
The blood - brother I can trust in all of my dealings.
You are the one who sees past a blemish or a flaw,
The friend whose pledges they would never withdraw.
A sacred blood oath sealed with a clasp of our hands,
Lasting until mountains are reduced to grains of sands.
One that will never be broken by lies, deceit, or greed,
Yes, my brothers and sisters ! That is a friend indeed !
