To my friend

by Em   Jan 11, 2017

You put up a barrier
paint on your smile
though I've noticed it's fake,
I've known for awhile.

Your persona is bubbly
inside you are weak
I realise that life
to you seems bleak.

Life hasn't been kind
you've been through the mill
though you have 'flaws'
I love you more, still.

    Em - This is a very kind sort of write. This is very good example of the nature of friendship.

    I true friend always gets a clue from the face only. Understanding the conditions of a friend is very vital for each one of us.

    Great solid write.
