Letter To A Stranger
You do not recognize my name
Nor am I in knowledge of yours
Though we have never met before
I feel the need to speak with you
To tell you stories of my life
And you provide me with the same
But before we start a friendship
I wish to ask you a ferw things
Thus, your undivided focus
Is what I need from you right now
Can you pay fervent attention
To every word that passes my lips?
In years past, I have met people
Who love srface phenomena
And fail to dive deeper than that
Refuse to connect ideas
Will you hear the depths of my verse
And perceive me for who I am?
And many of these same pepole
Have done nothing to assist me
With any hardship I have faced
Have not been there to support me
Do you keep an eye out for friends
To have their backs in trying times?
When there arrives a dire moment
That requires a frank dialogue
And an unfettered honesty
Without ny hesitation
Would you call out my behaviour
When it is less than savory?
All these things I ask in my search
For a Dee, pgenuine friendship
So hard have these traits been to find
That psychosis and loneliness
Have oftn been my only company.
What will you do to alter this?
