Poems by Anya Jain
Out there is a world made with love and by hearts waiting to be found,
In that world is a forest made by mother naturešs love,
In that forest is a village with happy souls,
In that magical village is a meadow with talking red roses and blue violets,
In that meadow is a beautiful path that leads you to a prairie,
In that prairie are buffaloes munching on some grass.
Not too far is a heaping mountain that takes you to a crystal cave,
Far away from that crystal cave is a burning hot desert,
Everything put together, makes this world, our loving world.
A friend is someone you can trust with all your heart,
A friend is someone who will always stay by your side,
A friend is someone you can depend on,
A friend is someone who will help you sneak the last two cookies from the cookie jar,
A friend is someone who will help you through the toughest times,
A friend is someone whom you can tell all your secrets to, without worrying,
A friend is someone who will talk to you for hours and hours and never get
A friend is someone who will help you stomp on your little brother,
A friend is someone who will always understand you,
A friend is someone you can keep in your heart.
Friends are like family,
Without friends this world would not be the way it is,
You and I know we have it all here in this class,
If you don't, then go and meet the world,
Think how wonderful it sounds 'A friend to hold onto.'
