If friends were stars,
The one closest to you is the North Star: always there, dependable, and bright.
The friends that are good for you that you should have are the stars that make up the constellations: mapping out the events of your life.
The friends you seem to always pick are shooting stars: amazing one second and gone the next.

Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious.....And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
-Walt Disney

I can understand this and relate, but I don't think I have any constellations, and definitely not a North Star.

She can because she thinks she can.

The description of a friend that you used is original and I love that about your poems. I wrote about friendship once in 6th grade except I focused on the people who are'nt your friends instead. I applaued you on another job well done!
