The Warnings We Ignore

by MG


Beware of smiles.

For those with the sweetest smiles may turn your soul into a rotting land.


Beware of promises.

For those with the best promises may trick you worse than a billion dollar swindler.


Beware of the light.

For only those who have felt the warmth caress of the light would plunge deeper into the dark.



You could hear a thousand warnings,


but it won't be enough to kill the temptations shall the chance arise.



You could carve out a billion warnings,


but it won't be enough to save you from the fire that would burn your freezing soul.



That is why conmen thrive.



That is why liars are believed.




I knew.


Because it had happened way too often.


Because once upon a time, I had ignored those warnings.



History taught a lot of things, but observance is a sin not many possess.


The human body conveys a lot of secrets, but observance is a virtue not many possess.



People are afraid of things they can't predict.


People are afraid of things they don't understand.



And yet how many of us try to predict?


And yet how many of us try to understand?



Observance is a sin not many possess.


Those who have it will suffer, knowing things not many others will understand.


Those who don't will suffer, because with unknowing comes fear.



Bitter circumstances come with sweet returns.



Live in fear, my love.


Or stop ignoring the warnings.


The choice is yours.
