How do we start to make friends?
Do we put ourselves out there?
Just enough, not too much…
We don’t want anyone to know
How does it work?
If we open ourselves,
Why does it chase them off?
What kind of monsters are we,
That simple compassion is denied?
We learn to make personas,
That show just enough.
We have to lie about ourselves,
To gain the companionship we desire.
How do we keep that relationship intact,
When it’s time to tell the truth?
We will know the friendship is right,
If they do not turn away from us.
