Poem: A Warning

They always warned us about drugs, 
They always warned us about sex, 
They always warned us about alcohol, 
And thinking we’re second best. 

They always warned about strangers, 
About lightening on an open field,
They always warned us about driving, 
And texting, but never about how we feel. 

They forgot to describe the depression, 
The sadness in our soul, 
They forgot to tell us about heartbreak, 
The weight of being alone. 

They forgot to mention the effect of death, 
The anorexic friends, 
They forgot about identity problems, 
About thinking it’s the end. 

They forgot to talk about temptation, 
The guy whose smile is magnetic, 
They forgot to warn us about ourselves, 
About feeling too pathetic. 

They forgot to mention the allure of the dangerous,
The rebellion of humanity
They forgot. 
Perhaps they meant to forget, 
For the sake of our sanity

They forgot to warn us about ourselves.
