A Perception On Life

Life goes on,
All around me,
My life goes on,
While life runs without me,
What to perceive,
How to know,
Without the wrong perception,
Wondering,
If my life connects to life,
Does anyone notice me,
Because I notice them,
Does anyone want to care about me,
My life,
In their life,
Because I want to know,
The world around me,
Above all,
The people that surround me,
The stress of knowing,
Every expression,
Every action a person makes,
And understanding the reasoning,
Behind their action,
And expression,
The greeting,
The building,
Building friendship,
But worrying about whats next,
My insecurity,
In my perception,
Unwanted life,
No one notices,
But when some one excepts me,
I'm surprised,
They want to know me,
Not knowing what t do,
I can't get close,
To many scars inside,
They can't know,
Or they will leave me,
But for the ones that push on,
That ignore my insecurity,
I am grateful,
To those who care about me,
Who wont abandon me,
The only thing left,
Is for them to let me know,
That they feel this,
Then I will let them,
Get close to me,
But for the ones,
Who show different,
Who show immaturity,
Who are selfish,
Who are shallow,
They will leave me,
That is how I tell,
The difference between people,
And friends.
