Hello stranger

Hello stranger
I just met you, so understand
that I have no obligation to you
no obligation to trust you
no obligation to care for your heart
because I must protect mine first

Hello stranger
please understand
I will look at you with distrust
I will not take in your words
I will examine them and you
For reason to hide or protect myself

Hello stranger
understand that before this
I thought you was easy to discern
the people are what they appear to be
what time and experience has taught me
to be skeptical of human intentions

Dear stranger
don’t misunderstand
if you’re good, if you’re true
please be patient, I will see
and if you cannot be patient
just go, I will remember you fondly
