Bob the Builder

Day 22
_________________________

"I'm going to help you build your life."

This is what a good friend says to me.
He has a few years on me.
His experiences and mine are on opposite spectrum ends.
_________________________

"I'm going to help you build your life."

What a good friend should always say.
How many friends of mine build me up?
It's easy, I can count them on one hand.
It's impossible to count all the others who tear me down.
_________________________

"I'm going to help you build your life."

Why do we settle for friends who don't say stuff like this?
My friends, my good friends,
they build me up and force me to expand.
They respect my shell when they "coerce" me out of it.
_________________________

"I'm going to help you build your life."

Only those who see your soul,
Your inner light,
Your endless possibilities,
say this stuff to you.

Thank you,
my dearest friends.
