on friendship....

how can we know for certain that someone is a friend ?
that they wish us well?
that they would move far beyond
their own comfort zone
 in order to insure our well being?
is that then the criteria for 'friendship' ?
does one need to "lay down their own, actual life"
in order for "us" to feel loved and worshipped ?
is WORSHIP part of friendship ??
yikes!!
its a provocative topic..to be sure...
one with myriad levels of synchronicity
 and bio-rhythmic patterning...
how much does one need to prove in order to
earn the title of 'friend' ?
is it possible that WE have pushed the envelope a tad too far,
in our pursuit of being 'friended' ?
how can we know?
where does RECIPROCITY fit into this equation?
it's puzzling and somewhat alarming as well.....
to look back and see just HOW FAR
 we've floated from the shore...
from safety...
for there are sharks and barracuda swimming out here...
and the guppies and crabs who were once our friends...
are now simply casualties of LOVE and WAR...
groping to keep from being eating
by Magellan or some other far off, 'shore guy'...
and so it goes....
thoughts ?
