It's something I scribbled on a piece of paper many years ago. I believe every person must have someone to look up to, to make himself a better person.

"People sit each day trying to figure you from the inside and out; sometimes they even want to change you. In the long run, they see you won't change or be something they want you to be. Why? Because you're only being you and that's something people will never be - that's what makes you different from other people."

Written in 2007 by Jay Xiong --- Wisconsin

"Friends Forever

F-riendship should always last forever...
R-eassuring each other's company whenever, whatever.
I-n fact, it should always take imperfections no matter,
E-nclosing some best kept secrets tight and wish for the better.
N-o matter how life goes, friends will always tap your back,
D-esiring you to calm down, even how weird you sometimes act.
S-hutting your mouth up, when you're hard-headed round the clock,
F-eeding you good thoughts, when they see you out of tract.
O-asis of support, they give you when you sink,
R-ays of understanding, when you speak before you think.
E-normous rain shower of kisses for making blue moments pink,
V-ast clouds of love will hug you every minute, every blink.
E-ternity or forever, that's how true friends in our heart should be,
R-emember too it's important to keep Trust, Love, Respect and Honesty!

Just wanted to share my view about friends and friendship.
