Wit' such f(R)iends around, DEsi sometimes wonders if he has been "too kind" to others, as I always give newer acquaintances BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT! TRusted and proven fRIends have oft reproached DEsi for being "Naive"; my response as always goes som'thin' like t'is: As an activist, I Need to interact with as many people as possible; also, we must "trust" that each "Rascal" who lets ye down would have made ye WISER, yes!
IN meeting such LETDOWN MOments, I go back to my past writings to lift me up agin and here is ONE I Find SOLACE in:~~~
in high and low tides
through thick and thin -- especially through your nightmare woements
cherishing tender times as One
dispersing the aches of a fall
we are All in One and One for More...
you made Desi's counting of fRiends on my two hands' fingers waver
from a lo of 3 to a hi of se7en, my Lucky Number
Thou art One who stays forever
He/she inspires this little poem
'Tho we have sometimes not kept in touch
But words don't do justice enough
to the genuine feelings we both know
that beat Constantly
in o u r heARTs
in waking hours
in less conscious moments
in slumber nice or knot...
we will never drop the "R"
in our f R i e n d ship
that's what we have destined ourselves
when we stay in our precious isle
