I was going to call this poem "friendship" but I felt the word "Amistad" and its origin better reflect the emotion I am trying to convey.  Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between people who know each other.  "Amistad" refers to a friend in a similar way but holds a deeper meaning; one that says "you cannot pick you family but you can pick you friends" and sometimes a friend becomes your family. 

(Rough Copy)

Your soul and mine always intended to meet
Out nowhere you appeared in my life and with ease
You needed someone to care deeply 
You needed me as much as I needed you
It's been years and here we are, thick as thieves

Both of us were deserted
Our souls aching for someone to care
For someone to be real
For someone who won't hurt us
For someone to fuel our dreams

Our bond is not one based on blood
Life has taught us what is love
Love isn't a physical bond
But something deeper and more pure

You tell me I am like a bird that always needs to fly
No matter where I go my friend 
If you need me, I will be by your side
For you are not just someone I know
More than a friend you have become my sister
And the bond we have forged is strong

Although we are not always together
Our hearts are never apart
When your life feels like its collapsing
Know you are Athena ready to fight back

This poem I wrote for you
To remind you of your potential 
This world needs more of your dreams
And I need your honesty

Do you know just how much you mean to me?
Without you, my world would become bleak
We are mad hatters 
Full of dreams and pains
You tell me I bring you to life
Yet you are the air that fill my lungs

As you take this next step in you life
More beautiful things are yet to come
I know you will be a terrific mother
I know you will love and protect your child

When you need me call me
When the pain threatens to rush forth,
I will soothe your spirit as I sing
Reminding you of the essence you carry within

As you take the hand of the one who loves you
Let fears dissipate
Don't be afraid to dream
Accept this new challenge with calm and easy
For you are not alone and you will never be

I passionately believe one person can make a difference. I write from my own experiences and interests. It is my greatest hope that by writing about my own challenges, victories, hopes and learnings, others may feel inspired to believe more in their inner power and to fully embrace themselves!
