Games learned as children are games no more.
Hiding that had been learned at childhood’s door.
Hide we still are,
Near here and there far.
Will we ever be found, will the game never end?
What awaits us around the next bend?
Seeking no more.

Really heartbreaking poem. Some of the things out there are truly terrifying.
Agreed. That’s why we write/talk about them – so they lose their frightening power.
