Abstract

In this article, the author utilizes prose poems as a means of exploring the phenomenon of friendship. Friendships are highly important relationships that are often neglected both by individuals and helping professionals. During a 2-month period of in-depth exploration through the vehicle of the prose poem, the author uncovered barriers towards establishing and maintaining friendships. These barriers are shared to help the reader identify these issues in their relationships. Due to its structure and style, the prose poem proved to be an excellent tool for self-exploration and poetry therapy.
