Some Friendships (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)

Some people expect you
To spill your soul
They think they’ve learned you
Yet they have no idea
Just how many layers you have

They do reach out to you
But it takes time for two people
To meet each other halfway
I have learned that everyone should
Move at a pace that is comfortable

Friendships should move naturally
Just let people be who they are
Patience is the most important element
Than anyone should consider
When bringing a new “friend” into their life
