Ballerina With Fins

Beware. - Poem by Ballerina With Fins

Beware; they say, Beware.
Be wary, be watchful; Beware.
Be shady and shaky and farfetched;
the warning; do beware.

Beware of the child with
the melancholy eyes; his face delusive
and winsome.

Beware of the of the stranger in
the unholy night; his hands are stained
with deception.

Fallacious, fallacious; false, untrue! ,
they proclaim, beware, beware.

Beware of the witch submerged
in the darkness; beware her splemetic stare.

There is so much to fear in this wild world;
it's mysteries swirling and bright.
Still we are covered with these blindfolds;
thus gone; our second sight.

Beware of the beggar in the
murky black; the tears on his face
shining bright.

Beware the words on this paper; for
Words are forbidden! in this frightened world
Even words that show us the light.
