By Storm

Beware of fire child
It might burn you
I know is seems tempting
I want to burn too

Beware of water child
Don’t dive too deep
I know it is beautiful
When you long for eternal sleep

Beware of darkness child
It’ll eat you up from inside
I know it seems harmless
But when darkness falls you’d better hide

Beware of people child
They do not deserve your tears
I know you feel lonely
You’ll get used after a few years

Beware of living child
Don’t become just another drone
Live inside yourself child
Trust me you’re better off alone

Be alone now sweet child
Closed inside your numb shell
And I will think of you for a while
Another child condemned to hell

    this poem has a nursery rhyme quality to it which is really awesome because of the themes you are expressing--whether that was intentional or not--excellent job.

    So sad, and so true. Portrays the feeling that we need to wrap children up in cotton wool extremely well. Beautiful work. ~L

  • A former member wrote: interesting lullaby... Like "wish upon a star" said it is like guidance and protection from darker things... also seems to be guiding someone away from being used and hurt by others in this cruel world we live it... Good write! *Jess*
