    The Nature of Friendship

    Tonight, I was attempting to clean up my circle.  The circle gets a life of its own, it grows and grows and people come and go.  I can't ignore the people in my circle who aren't there.  Meaning, I still visit, gesture, scribble, send gifts to those that are...

    I feel as though I will never be seen

    for what I could be. I don't know how to prove I'm worth being appreciated. My friends are off having fun and they plan their fun day in front of me but without me. I need new friends.
