That friendly touch

That friendly touch.

A mask is formed in many ways
As in orchestrated plays
When we walk out in the street
We don a look for whom we meet.

For a friend a welcome smile
From a stranger we will recoil
For fear we may have to speak
Cover we will always seek.

Stepping from the shadows find
Welcome light peace of mind
A motion which is hard to face
Try to feel its warm embrace.

Open up unlock the gate

Open up unlock the gate

Life’s too short to stop-wait
No time to sit-procrastinate
Days weeks pass into years
Loneliness can lead to tears.

A mind full of fears-frustrations
Doubting confidence-complications
Masked behind clouded eyes.

Locked sadness gloom enshroud
Screaming silently out loud
So difficult now to penetrate
To open up unlock the gate.

Be sure you’re not the only one
An introvert-a lonely one
Trust my friend the air will clear
True happiness will replace that fear.

If you need a helping hand
To lead you through-understand
Reach out grasp that stinging nettle
Let that turmoil-torment-settle.
