A Stranger’s Heart

A Stranger’s Heart

I was alone and scared,
Not sure of my next step.
It was a new place to me,
I didn't know anyone, or anywhere.

 

I was lost, shy and timid.
I didn't know who to ask for directions.

People laughed and mocked me.
Scorning the very ground I walked on.

 

I miss my old place,
I had a voice then, and a face.

 

But then I thought to myself,
What makes here different?
The people here are as human as the ones there,
And I’m as much a stranger as I was once, back there.

 

I decided to break the chain,
Ease the negativity off of me.
There was this girl I'd seen,

She was as disconnected as I.

 

“Hi”, I beckon

“Can we be friends?”
She sprang up in excitement.

And all our sadness were gone

 

So, I wallow in my thoughts
You would probably never know

How much “Hi” can mean to someone;
How much of their sorrow it can annul.

 

As we bonded and walked side by side,
I felt invincible!
Judging from the gleams on her eyes,
She felt the same way too.

 

So, we chorused in silence,
Dear world, I found a friend!!!
