My Friend Live Dangerously - Poem by Lawrence s. Makola

He is naïve, simple yet complex
He is determine that he is right
What comes is fine without
Checking the danger covered

He lives as blind-folded man
Walks as headless chicken
Failing to say a word as mute
Recognizing not abyss lay forth

I thought to myself
What help can I offer
How can I make him aware?
All can see but him not

He is happy when they surround him
Encircling him like a captured man
Happy when he sees the smiles
Thinking the world is his
Forgetting danger that lies

To him all is clear
To us he is walking in darkness
His heart knows where he stands
Our hearts doubt his judgement
And feel sorry about his choice

He is my friend but
Danger is his friend too
We share him all the time
When he is surrounded

My friend wake up
See around you
Then judge with your mind
Let your sight surpass
The strength of your heart
For now I belief it sees not
