It’s often hard to open up to the max
Because offlate sincerity comes at a cost;
The anchor that holds solidarity and loyalty I believe is trust.
If I asked you to fully open up to me as a friend ;
Tell me something that you think might offend me or put a dent on our friendship,
I mean undeniable facts,
Some one confessed I’m too sarcastic;
Finding the right words at the right time is always a bit of a struggle, so I tend to hide behind the curtains of humour.
We never give a 100%
Yet we expect a 100%.
Difficulties in opening up,
Probably blame it on our imperfection
Sometimes past experiences;
All these and more play a major role.
Storms gather inside of my brain,
Do I let it rain?
Often you make it look easy
Sometimes hard to look away,
Do you love the pain?
The voices in my head tell me I should be honest
Stubborn as ever
I don’t pay attention,
I tend to ignore their comments.
Just say something,
I promise I’m open to change.
The clock just keeps on tick tocking fast,
Im used to making mistakes
Eventhough I know, there’s danger in the lesson learned.
Offlate keeping friends have been some kinda hurdle I have to jump over.
Truth is, people who promise to stay in your life through thick and thin will leave you over a ripple.
Life often presents us with more temporary friends than permanent ones.
Hard truth is,
I know I would have to make a couple of practical decisions about what and who I want in my life and what I’m willing to give up for that;
It’s often hard.
And if you are also in this dilemma, remember that if you don’t make those decisions as early as possible,
Life has a funny way of making those decisions for you.
