To overcome is hard
For me, the first step was just the start
We were standing about twenty feet apart
I started walking up to them and they put up their guard
I was nervous because I was so shy
Walking up while, thinking of a million ways to say "Hi"
My heart was pounding, I thought I was alright
Looking at them, I managed a smile
As I got closer, I decided to just walk by
I failed my first attempt of making new friends
I was determined so it wasn't the end
The next day around the same time
I walked with some courage and went to say, "Hi"
They said it back, but I couldn't look at their eyes
I could feel them looking at my profile
I looked up, met their eyes, and saw them smile
Millions of questions ran through my mind
Will they like me? Will they know my intention to talk to them was kind?
The bell rang before anyone could speak again
I failed yet again at making new friends
The very next day they came up to me
I looked at them with a face full of glee
They asked me if I wanted to have lunch with them
At that moment my mind went numb
After a moment they asked me again and I said, "I'll come"
It turned out that making friends was easy to do
All I needed was courage to go up to them
Meeting the right friends for me was based on luck
I am glad that I didn’t pass the group by
All it took was walking up to them with a smile and a “Hi”
