Thank youI don't ask for help

My friends stick close and give advice
I'm still not sure why they have stayed
But the answer is always the same
"You're a good friend and good person"
I don't see how that relates

They've stayed true in tough times
But I still think I don't know them
And know it won't go anywhere if I ask

If I am
Why haven't I seen it?
You'd think I'd notice this?
But I guess
deep down inside
I know they're right.

He terrified me.
My brother couldn’t get enough of him.
When my brother got caught in my mother’s evening dress, my mother grabbed us both and dragged us to Genghis. It was a slow day, and we were the only kids crowding him. “Tell him what you did,” my mother hissed a
