Don't Talk To Strangers

Disclaimer: This poem is dark and it deals with mental health issues. It can be triggering to some. Reader discretion is advised.

Don't talk to strangers

because you don't know their intentions.

They pose danger

to children like you.

Don't trust strangers.

It is a mantra.

They pose danger.

So, run, run, run!

Don't talk to strangers!

Stranger danger!

They are not your friends!

So, go, go, go!

Don't talk to Strangers!

They won't help you.

You don't know their intentions.

So, stay silent and hide.

There is danger

when it comes to strangers.

There are monsters

among strangers.

Although I wish,

that someone had told me too

that danger can be found

at home too.
