Friends, Philosophers and Guides

Friends stand by you,
Through thick and thin;
Giving you solace,
Nursing your mind,
Till it gets enough strength;
To heal and recover itself .

Books too are true friends,
The ones you can turn towards;
For comfort, entertainment,
knowledge and advice.
They will never fail,
To uplift your spirits,
When you get your blues.

Turn to a good book,
E-book or a paperback;
It does not matter,
Which one you choose.
What really matters,
Are the words that flow.
Be wise in your choice.

For it is rightly said-
A person is judged,
By the company he keeps.
