Archives For friendship


I see you look at me

But you don’t know what you see

You yell at me to go home

You say I don’t belong here

I don’t understand what you’re saying

as I stand in front of my house

I ask what home you speak of

You reply anywhere but here

There is no space for your kind here

I ask what kind you speak

I only know that you and I are the same

You yell back at me

that we are as different as night and day

as night and day I say

You are black and I am white you tell me

I say oh I didn’t realize that makes us different

I know I want happiness like you

I want a family like I know you have

I want to raise my children as you do

I cry when I’m sad just like you

I bleed when I’m injured just like you

and I know I work just as hard as you do

so I think we are not different and that

I have learned my right to stay here

I know if there is room for you

there is room for me

Why don’t you just try to be a friend

You bow your head in shame

realizing your mistakes

You beg for my forgiveness

I tell you that you needn’t ask

I just knew all of this would pass

40 years later we’re still here

we’re still friends

and now our kids are friends too

We may look different

But we feel, look and think just the same

I hope everyone else will become friends too

1. When you can’t remember why you became friends.

2. When your friend tells you that they can’t take it any more without saying what the “it” is, which is most likely you.

3. When your friend starts spending time with people they told you they hated because they were crazy and weird.

4. When your friend only wants to talk about what’s wrong in their life and are not at all interested in what’s wrong in yours.

5. When you realize that the things you had in common with your friend are no longer a common interest.

6. When your friend seems to be closer to their technology then they are to you.

7. When your friend constantly make excuses as to why they are too busy to see you.

8. When your friend decides you aren’t important enough for them to attend your birthday celebration.

9. When your friend starts fighting with the people you love for no reason.

10. When your friend cant stand any of your other friends and therefore won’t spend time with you.


My Hands Wrapped Around Your Heart

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I find my hands wrapped around your heart

Holding it together

Hoping you won’t falter

Falter from all that you are

From all that you have to offer

Your heart appears broken

Broken and tired

Tired from the pain

The pain that you feel with every prick and prod

The pain that you feel as you sit in the chair with another nameless face beside you

Every visit tears a little more of your heart away

You yearn for a time before becoming sick

You are hopeful for tomorrow

But know it’s not in your hands

You ask for gods help

You hope he’s listening

Everyone you know and love supports you

You’re never alone

Each day you’re getting stronger

Your color is coming back

I even see your hair growing

You tell me you’re coming back

There’s a smile across your face

A familiar smile that I used to know

One that I’m happy to know again

Your prayers are being answered

Because here you are once again with

My Hands Wrapped Around Your Heart

I’m so happy that you’re ALIVE!

My Hands Wrapped Around Your Heart

VideoMikayla Stern-Ellis, 19, Emily Nappi, 18, joined TODAY to tell the story of how they realized they had the same sperm donor, and were related. They met on Facebook before attending Tulane University and recently confirmed the relationship. “It’s so crazy walking around campus calling each other sisters,” said Stern-Ellis.

They look alike, love acting and chose the very same college hundreds of miles away from home. But there’s something else these new friends have in common and it’s making for an extraordinary family reunion.

Meet Mikayla Stern-Ellis, 19, and Emily Nappi, 18, who recently found out they are half-sisters, sharing the same biological father who donated sperm to their mothers.

“I already tell her I love her and it’s been two weeks,” Emily told TODAY’s Matt Lauer on Friday.

“It’s just really, really cool to gain more family,” added Mikayla.

The teens met on social media last year during the roommate search process at Tulane University in New Orleans. The girls — both freshmen — filled out a survey and noticed they had a lot in common. They didn’t end up sharing a dorm room, but kept in touch on Facebook. A few weeks later, Emily noticed Mikayla posting about her “Colombian sperm donor” biological father. It made Emily pause: she, too, was conceived with the help of an anonymous sperm donor from Colombia.

“When she posted that status, I thought that’s too much of a coincidence,” Emily said.

Could it be the same man? The teens joked about the possibility, but laughed it off. Still, the parallels kept coming: They both love the theater and will star in Tulane’s production of the “Vagina Monologues.” They have similar personalities and sport long curly black manes. Both were raised in California. They also have a similar taste in clothes: Mikayla bought a fleece jacket on a Black Friday shopping trip only to later find out Emily had bought the exact same coat.

So over the Christmas break, the girls asked their mothers for help. Sperm donors are issued numbers to identify them without revealing their names, so the teens compared theirs and were stunned to find out they matched.

“I wanted so badly to scream,” recalled Mikayla, who was at a doctor’s office when she got the news. “It was mind blowing.”

“I panicked,” Emily recalled. “I freaked out… I started running around the house screaming and telling everybody.”

The teens, who say they’ve become a lot closer since finding out they’re half-sisters, have enjoyed watching their families meet for the first time.

They differ in their interest in their biological father, however. Mikayla would like to meet the sperm donor, while Emily is curious what he looks like, but doesn’t want to find him.

The things that we do ….

Because You need me, I’ll always be there
When you are at your lowest, I’ll help you stand
When no one else wants to listen, I’ll lend an ear
When no one believes in you, you’ll have my faith and trust
When there is no food upon your table, there will always be extra seating at mine
When you have no clothing to place upon your back, my closet will be open to you
There is nothing I wouldn’t do for a friend or family in need
Oh the things that we do
They will always turn back to us someday

The Things That We Do
Written By Felina Silver Robinson
November 6, 2013


Friends

Come in all sizes and are all different ages

They sometimes want what you want and need what you need

They help you make the right decisions

Sometimes they tell you things you are not ready to hear

But you listen, because you know they are sincere

and more often than not, they are right

Friends

They take a beating

They stay through thick and thin

Just don’t abuse them because the good ones are hard to find

I’m the kind that would do whatever it takes to see you happy

I would help you be the best you that you can be

I would help you do those things you’ve always been too afraid to do

I would let you know that you can do almost anything

Because a true friend is that part of you that you always wanted to be

Friends

They will not falter

They will be there forever, if you let them

Me and my bully

09/10/2013 — 3 Comments

Even if you weren’t looking at me, I saw you
Even if you weren’t talking to me, I heard you
Even if you didn’t invite me, I really wanted to go
Even though you didn’t hear me, I was talking to you

You asked me why I’m always crying,
But I know you really don’t care
When I’m not looking, your laughing with your friends about me

At the beginning of the year I was happy and smiling
I was full of laughter
Walking around and hanging with my friends

Two months of knowing you
No one would dare to be my friend
I was destined to be alone
I was always alone
Except for when you and your friends would hurt me

Who are you? You’re my Bully!

Why do you hurt me?
Because you feel small inside
Because those you love have no time for you
They leave you out in the cold
Your friends just use you, because you’re rich
Because they know you are going places and someday, they might need you

Don’t you know, you’re just like me
You’re bullied too, so stop hurting me and maybe just maybe
We can just be friends

I wrote this for all of the kids that I know that are now being or have been bullied.
Stand up and take back your life.
Turn your bully into your friend,
Your bully is just as lonely as you are and maybe even lonelier.
