Fine Arts Feature: Journey Cornett

Author bio: ​​Hey! I’m Journey Cornett. I’m a freshman majoring in film and media production with a minor in entrepreneurship. I’m from Cambridge City, Indiana and have five younger siblings. I love photography, traveling, music, listening to stories and meeting new people! 


True Friend

Through thick and thin they’re there for me

In the midst of trials they watch out for me

They don’t gossip or put me down

They’ll pick me up if I’ve fallen to the ground

A real friend loves at all times

They celebrate my victories and weep when I cry

A real friend will be there to help

They’ll call and and they’ll reach out

If I begin to wander away from the faith

They’ll sit me down, put me in my place

If victory occurs, they’ll celebrate

They’ll be truly happy for me, no hidden hate

If I need to talk, they’ll listen without being judgmental

They live trustworthy and kind, it’s just that simple

A true friend is a gift from God

They’re loyal, incredible and loved

The question now is not “Do I have a friend like this?”

No, the question is something I’m still being taught

“Am I a friend like this?”
