Friendship is a ship in which friends cruise along,
To unite and have a cordial relations for long.
Striving for a fair and spirited companionship,
Contentment for  everyone is what it worships.
A remedy for each others sorrows and woes,
In strenuous times always on toes.
A contradiction regarding best and the common,
Extraordinarily sent directly from the heaven.
Party to hilarious chats and perfect recreation,
At times go insane and face humiliation.
Occasionally indulge into a fictitious tussle,
Leading to a sudden hustle and bustle.
Surpasses many obstacles en-route its destination,
Only has the greed for respect,love and affection.
Like a train shatters when derailed,
True friendship holds itself nailed.
Relying totally on human behaviour,
Persists for short duration or forever.
At its full liberty and pleasure,
One of life's greatest treasures.
