Remember those days;
when friendship came easy?
Remember the years with no doubt?
When did the walls start building up?
Lost too many friends to count.
Year after year, it became strenuous;
letting people into my life.
Trust was an issue - that I can admit to,
and friendships were ruined by strife.
It’s a big task to burden yourself
with people who really don’t care.
So do me a favor and break down those walls;
the ones that cause you despair.
Keeping friends isn’t easy,
and it’s hard to not be afraid.
I had a fear of friendship
since 7 years of age.
There’s one thing I’ve learned from facing this fear:
that nothing goes as planned.
The real friends that you’re meant to keep
will always hold your hand.
