Friendship Recipe

I first used this poem in  May, 1999 and listed it as author unknown. When I googled the first line  today, I found this author’s name. She was, allegedly, born in 1985. Do you have any information on this poem and author?

Recipe For Friendship

Attributed to aashka thakkar

`Fold two hands together with an expressed dash of sorrow,

Marinate it overnight

And work on it tomorrow.

Chop one grudge in tiny pieces,

Add several cups of love,

Dredge with a large sized smile.

Mix with the ingredients above.

Dissolve the hate within you

By doing a good deed,

Cut in and help your friend

If he should be in need,

Stir in laughter, love, and kindness

From the heart it has to come.

Toss with genuine forgiveness

And give your neighbor some.

The amount of people served

Will depend on you.

It can serve the whole wide world

If you really want it to.
