Confusing People

People make me nervous.
I don't know what to say.
There are so many ways that I can reply
That my thoughts lead me astray.


What does that joke mean?
It's a common thought to me.
I don't know if something is sarcasm
Or if it is meant to be mean.


I know that person is feeling sad,
But what am I supposed to do?
I don't know how to cheer them up,
But I really wish I knew.


People are complicated
With all of their different layers.
Perhaps someday I'll understand,
And I'll see the truth of theirs.
