Poem of the Week: My Friends Know I’m Not Alone

“Who am I to everyone around me?”

I wonder as I see new faces with smiles of kindness

People from a variety of diverse communities I see

I’m showered with compliments about my uniqueness

 

I tend to be honest with things I want to reveal

As they gaze upon the vivid imagery I wish to express

Excited the most about the things I dream of being real

While keeping close watch of my secrets that I’ll later confess

 

Standing up against conflicts that bother me so

I put all my effort to gradually ease the tension

Because I care for others, which I hope they know

To make fun memories I’ll later mention

 

As I adapt to what is happening in the moment

I do fear of never getting any help as I feel myself hide

Yet, I’m comforted by those who follow where I went

They are my friends who I trust, that can be by my side
