These lines have been written in response to a prompt on

The prompt was to write whatever came to mind about the image given below

You have been warned

You have been warned

Whispered a little voice

Brushing it aside, I nodded my head

Assuring myself proud and vain

That there’s no reason to be alarmed

You have been warned

It spoke a bit loud

With irritation told it to shut its mouth

I know my people since a long time

Don’t fill my mind with your bizarre doubts

You have been warned

It almost shouted at me

But by then things were plain and clear

Had lost those who I considered dear

Leaving a hole in my heart

You had been warned

It choked and cried

That little voice that had, been my guide

I wiped its tears, and cried in despair

For my broken and dead life
