Strength from a Friend (Jason M Smith-Lafayette, LA)

We look for love in the wrong place
Why do we turn to some strangers face?
It could be there right in front of you
Are we just scared of what we might do?
Passing by without seeing the compassion
Is that’s what is today’s fashion?
I don’t understand why we fear so much
Are we afraid of another humans touch?
I know how you feel with life’s little plan
That’s why I am here to lend you my hand.
Don’t be afraid of where our friendship will lead
That’s why I wish you were closer to me.
I understand that we are friends till the end
So don’t blow me away just like the wind.
I am here with you to just have fun
Just like the moon needs the sun.
Please don’t think this is presumptuous of me
I know you are a kindred spirit that has to be free.
Whenever you feel lonely and depressed
I will always be there to help you rest.

When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
