Friendship is exactly as it sounds; a ship of friends.
Who work together to get the ship moving.
Who live with each other’s actions and decisions.
Who help the others with their problems, should they arise.
There are calm waters; when our friendship lies undisturbed.
There are fierce storms; short squalls and long tempests.
New crewmembers are added.
Others are washed overboard; but the best hang on.
Yes, friendship is exactly as it sounds; yet much harder than it seems.


The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this after my friend and I got into a fight. I thought about friendship and what it really meant, and while thinking about it I thought, 'Friendship is such a strange words. It sounds like a 'friend ship', which is how I got this idea.

Wow, this is really neat. I never considered friendship as, literally, a ship. Great job!
