Are you really someone I can trust?

When do I really see
that you care and really agree
with all I struggle through and fall
and get knocked down through it all?

None of it makes sense
when I see your ignorance
and exclamation of judgement
incrementally instrument

in the work that you do
you say that it's true
that you care what I say
but question what may be hard.

Should I really trust you care what I do
When I never see
you coming to me
telling me so I see you too?

Trust me with some part of you
so I can really know you too
and not just guess if you are true
but judge by what I know you do.

Friendship is not made of words
but of actions that SHOW truth
and provide an acting proof
that doesn't have to be heard.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I'm writing this because I'm in a new school, and I have a lot of people that seem to greet me because I'm new, but nobody shows me anything but what is obvious. I don't feel comfortable sharing anything that could be judged because I see them judging others like me left and right. I have very few friends that truly know me.

Well, take a few risks, what could happen really? Can't get any worse than now with stressing, besides people can surprise you be warmer smile lots = fun getting to know them ;) even if they have to work a little harder to get to know you? Nice work! Gets that angst right up in yer face! Cheers SS missed ya.

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

The encouragement was really helpful. It has been a while since this incident, and quite frankly I'm so glad I'm done with it. I was pretty down in the dumps. Your comment was a nice reassurance though! Thank you!

This is really good.. I liked

This is really good.. I liked the flow in each stanza and it made me really think about what I was reading and how I could relate. Keep it up! Try not to stress too much or overthink what people are or arent doing at your new school. Odds are that they are just as nervous as you and may not know if they can trust you yet either. Just be yourself and take it slow :)

Thank you!

Now that I have been there for a while, I'm not really worried at all. I made friends with people really quickly, and was commonly accepted by people I consider my best friends already. Your comment was a very kind revelation of hope when you gave it. Thank you so much.
