Making New Friends

by Dolly'sPoems

The trace of someone's true intention shines
within their actions, words and their demeanour;
we warm to those who show those kind inclines,
as we become beguiled by their persona.

We learn to read the signs, to know the score
to memorise, compute the information;
we analyse, and want to know much more
as we consider with evaluation.

Can we be blinded by someone we like?
Can we be fooled by words, by smiling eyes?
Some characters are clever, cunning tikes,
a wolf in sheepish clothing is disguised.

Attention should be paid to everything
assessing someone new's a scary thing.
