A good enemy is better than a best friend
A good enemy can't betray
A good enemy won't go away
A good enemy will be there at the end

A best friend will fail
A best friend tells you what to think
A best fiend pushes you to the brink
A best friend will bail

A good enemy pushes you forward
A good enemy tests your steel
A good enemy makes you real
A good enemy seeks no reward

A best friend makes demands
A best friend always judges
A best fiend holds grudges
A best friend won't withstand

With an enemy you know they hate you
With a friend you are not sure
To an enemy you can be true
When they run you through
It won't be from behind
A friend won't just let it end
Tell you they never liked you
Every story you tell they bend
Every wound you mend
They inflict two more

With enemies like these  who needs friends
I finally got a new picture I liked. This one is by :iconnunoramos0:. Here is a link to the note that says I can use it. [link]
I hope you all like it!!

Now that I look at this and I know what it's like to have nothing at all, no enemies or friends, I would say that friends are definitely a must-have... while sometimes they might betray you or leave you behind (which has happened to me), I still believe friends are better than enemies. True friends will love you, not hate you. I'd rather be loved than hated :3
Btw, I'm not trying to stomp on this, I just thought I'd say that! It's a nice poem, that's just how I feel!
