The affection of strangers

To strangers we portray a first impression of our choice We always employ the a natural tone in my voice A stranger’s curiosity evokes our own Mistrust clouds us, kindness is easier to reckon Their amicable innocence is like a mirror That cedes unadulterated judgments of who we are They may have questions we’ve never asked before Our spirits are released by what they wish to know A good stranger brings to life what a friend buried Something free of grudges or scores, only goodwill is traded Two strangers birth a friendship free and pure Like a baby’s searching eyes, positivity is the only lure
