“Welcome Friend! . . . ”

Have you ever shut out
One who was to be your friend,
A Divinely ordained support for you
Dismissed for religion, sex, or color of skin?

We miss so many chances
When chained to notions such as those,
Prejudices lacking legitimacy
Block friends, like stripping petals from a rose.

Gift everyone an open hand,
At least give them a shot,
They need a friend as much as you,
Shall we let them go for naught?

Just as family is defined by love,
Not blood,
Friendship is defined by souls that
Will stand with you against the flood.
