 reflections

take the time (to know someone)


sometimes it's the people you don't know
and not the books upon your shelf
that show you who you want to be
and that might just be yourself

because if you ever thought
you were more than just a name
then there might be someone just like you
and they might just feel the same

so take the time to know someone
even if it's the only thing you do
because you might just learn about yourself
and that might just see you through

and if you're feeling lonely
or if you're feeling down today
just think of all those little things
that might just get you on your way

for whether it's a stranger or a friend
who you talk with for a while
you will appreciate them all the more
and that might just make them smile

so take the time to know someone
even if it's the only thing you do
because they might just learn about themselves
and that might just see them through
