Just Be You


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2007 with permission of the Author.

Why are you so different when you're with friends
yet when we're alone you let your heart unbend. 
You try to act cool; you try to act tough,
but when it's just us, you're none of that stuff.
You act so much different when it's just me.
There's a person inside you I wish they could see.
He's honest and caring and very sincere
I just wish you'd show it when they are near.
I guess what I'm saying is you should always be true,
and if they're true friends, they'll like you for you.
