James Borden

Mom

People would be nowhere without a trusty companion.
It can either be a friend or a love interest.
They need someone to fall back on.
Without this person, one would feel alone.
There would be no one to talk to with problems or joy.
Misery would linger about in the thin air.
Haunting and never departing, ever.
People’s faces would be a blank canvas.
Jubilance, useless, without someone to share joy with.
My companion has been my best friend.
My companion answers to Mom.
