Free Verse Poetry

Thank God for friends

old and new 
(and yet to be)
ones who 
become your family

These are the people 
who mended my fences 
who rebuilt my bridges 
who filled in my voids 
in whatever way they could

So much I’ve learned 
from these friends 
along the way
from the people who 
chose me and I them

And we kept choosing 
each other everyday
through high tides and 
through low valleys 
in ways my blood 
was never able to do

They taught me to be 
strong patient kind
forgiving accepting happy
everything I am

Just when I thought I 
was past learning
they’ve taught me to 
believe in myself to 
have faith in others

Just when I thought I 
was past hope
