~Thank You Karen~

I wear a mask
so people don't see
What is inside
the real me

I am not the happy go lucky
person that I appear to be
There are many different
sides of my personality

I can be happy
I can be glad
I can be witty
and I can be mad

But the one that I hide
is the one when I am sad
I don't like to make
other people feel bad

I always like to
make people smile
Even if I am crying
in the meanwhile

Why can't I swallow my pride
and let people know 
Is it because I'm to stubborn
or is it my ego

I've been hurt
by friends in the past
It made my heart feel
like it was an outcast

I wanted to let you in
It felt right from the start
That we were meant to be friends
I could feel it in my heart

You have made me feel 
I can trust my heart again
You have helped me to heal
You have helped my heart mend.

I can't thank you enough
for what you have done
I know our friendship will last forever
and yet it has just begun.
