On friendship in a new city

Remember again that it is about giving,
about an outpouring of –

I mean to say
that when I first came,
finding friends was about me,
my own need for connection.

I forgot that
friendship is about
giving,
being there,
reaching out,
sharing the stories and lessons of life
so that
they may inspire, challenge, and comfort others,

and to let others be the same for you.
