Trusted Friends

There is this wonderful couple,
you never find them to far apart.
Most of their lives have been spent
just sitting around accomplishing

They are known for their knowledge
and wisdom and willingness to
share it with everybody, so it comes
as a great surprise that few people
ever take the time to visit.

One day someone happened to
stop by that was in dire need of
some help, and this is were she was
told to go.

Now Theo. and DI were delighted
to share their most inner thoughts,
for this is what made them happy
and feel worth while.

These three have become the best
of friends, they spend hours together
going back and forth in not so deep,
to very weighty conversations.

Theo. and DI never get tired of
sharing their knowledge of the world
with anyone and with open arms
give all of them selves freely.

Their friend has become much
more secure in this world because
she was strong enough to fight back
and get that which she wanted so
badly, and should have been thought
to understand a long time ago.

With the help of her very trusted
friends, the life that was so hard
to live in but also very embarrassing
has became one of great joy and
filled with wondrous  new

She is learning that there might
very well be a place in this world
for her after all, and she continues
to grow every day.

By,   Cerenity

Theo. is short for, Thesaurus and DI is short for Dictionary.
The she in this story happens to be myself and until I came
to passions I did not believe that anybody was interested in
what I had to say or that what I wanted to tell the world
was worth anything. What is really sad is that in this day
and age there are millions of kids graduating from high
school and not knowing how to read or write at all as with
myself, if you know of someone with this problem please
take the time to help, it could mean the difference between
a very sad life or one of great joy.

What remarkable fortitude you display.
I applaud your efforts and encourage
you to rely on your friends if you need
any assistance in your pursuit.

Bless your heart for having the courage
to open yourself up to a whole new world
through self-education.
You are to be admired ... and I do.
If you ever need assistance ....

Much love and hugs to you.

Loved your poem!!!  Thank you very much for having the courage to share this with us.  That took a lot for you to do.  Do not be discouraged, what you have to say is important and does matter to those who love you.  Hope that you find what you are searching for.

 Friends are friend forever if the Lord's the Lord of them and a friend will not say never cause the welcome will not end.

If I only had the power - I'd formally request of Webster and Roget that they officially change the spelling of "serenity" to honor you...

You have touched on a subject that I hold dear. We need to encourage everyone, not just kids, to learn to learn to love to read and to never be embarrassed about asking for help. I have several of these trusted friends right next to me here. NO one should be without them.

Poetry can be used to spark an interest in reading as poems are usually shorter than a story.  

Support your local library, RIF group or tutor's worth it ..and you'll feel good too...

Thanks so much for bringing this subject to our attention with your wonderful poem.

This is so lovely, poetry is so much better - in my opinion - when it actually has something to say and really means something, even if only to the author for it is bound to touch someone.
Well done...

Love, Peace and Sequins...MISS.QUEENY xxx

both speak volumes about your kind heart.
I understand what you are saying...about the encouragement found here in this special place and about the healing in growth I find in be the most honest I could ever be...the only time I am truly at peace and content is when Im sitting with my T&D and my journal writing...or when Im in here reading all of the poetry of this amazing group. I know several adults who couldnt is so very sad... thank you for bringing attention to is something we all take for granted...but think what we would miss out on if it was taken away.
take care, jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...
