What really matters fame or friendship?

If I were famous I would remember my friends.

I would not always be living in a bubble.

If i were famous I would remember those who

Stood by me when I was a nobody.

If I were famous, I would have time for the people that matter.

If I were famous, I would be strong enough to be myself.

If fame lasts only 15 minutes, what do you do for

the rest of your life?

Try to mend your broken friendships?

Or do you remain true to your self

and be damned the glitter and glam

for what really matters

are friends...

People gravitate toward the light

of fame and when the light

goes out...those "friends" fly away.

Your true friends remain even when the

light dims and you are

a nobody again.

Only God is great

and Perfect

and we are imperfect

while life is a lesson

in love and forgiveness

and friendship

Think about your talent

your family

and most of all

hold your friendships

That is all we can truly do for when they pass from this world...only memories remain and though they are can't hug a memory.

A most wise poem as friends are easy to lose but hard to come by.
Reviewed by Elisabeth Barstowe 4/25/2010
So true, not much else matters in life.There's no light brighter than the light the love from family and friends bring to ones heart. Well written.
