I am not your enemy

When you confided in me,
       I kept your secrets.
When you were in danger,
       I warned you.

When your friends conspired against you,

       I spoke in your defense.
When your colleagues discounted your skills and contribution,
       I expounded on your genius, strength and accomplishments.
When you faced personal struggles,
       I prayed for your renewed happiness and health.
When you found yourself in strange lands,
       I sent you trusted people for you not to be alone.
When you assigned me a challenge,
       I accomplished and executed successfully and credited all to you.
When asked about you,
       I spoke the truth.  You are a trusted friend that I have and always will respect.
Others’ jealousy and envy have poisoned our friendship
       for they want what we still have.  RESPECT.
You know me.
Am I your friend or foe?
Only you can decide.
