Reach Out

via Daily Prompt: Impression

We pass each other on the street
No eye contact is made
Attraction may permit a glance
But for all else we act afraid

Or at those times with voices raised
In anger and frustration
Why can’t those others see your view
And show appreciation

Let’s change to venue that is safe
There’s not the same aggression
You bob and weave and smile and laugh
To make a good impression

And when that effort is displayed
Most often it’s returned
Think back and count examples of
How few times you were spurned

How different are those strangers that
Arriving on our shore
Are met with eyes averted when
They clearly wish for more

The lead is yours and clearly rests
Within your personality
Enrich your social circle more
Extend some hospitality
