Friendship needs reciprocity.
We talk about loving without expectation
but that seems an impossible dream
a relationship where one always
gives but never receives
does not seem like a friendship to me.
So then, what is a friendship?
We feel betrayed when someone
doesn’t measure up
to our expectation as a friend
yet we feel a bit ashamed
that our friendship has demands.
F riendhips must include respect
R eal friendhips are rare
I dentify what yo think a friendship should include
E ach friendship should be built on trust
N o one wants to feel used
D o you qualify as a good friend?
