How to get a friend?

How do you get a friend?
In a world full of micro-expressions
So small they cannot be seen
It can be difficult to make first impressions
When you act too keen

How do you get a friend?
When your honesty is too much
People think your rude
Or horrible as such
Judging you like a prude

How do you get a friend?
When you panic while speaking
And are slow to reply
You’re anxiety is peaking
Trying to comply

How do you get a friend?
When you look like you’re not listening
Because you can’t keep eye contact
Unintentionally distancing
Wishing you could react

How do you get a friend?
When you find conversing tough
The back and forth talking
Not knowing how to bluff
And not sounding like you’re squawking

I really want a friend
They help you when you’re stressed
Hold your hand when you feel alone
They make you feel blessed
Even when they bitch and moan

I thought to get a friend
You needed to make a joke
Make them smile
Give them a Facebook poke
Or follow them awhile

I thought to get a friend
I needed to wear a mask
Pretend to be someone new
This was such a tiring task
And no friends, not even a few

I thought it was impossible
That no one would get me
But this is not true
I finally took off the mask to see
To get a friend just be you

Thanks for reading. Hope you like it. Peace out!
