Society is to blame, yet we ourselves form the society.

In you come, you little child,
the world outside is a little wild.
Say no more, say no less,
just come in, it's a welcoming shore.

I promise I'll stay wherever here is, I say,
one and only for you, I will find a way.
The sky is dark, the sky is black,
outside is where the society is, just turn your back.

Home doesn't have to be where the heart is,
but, if you please, just let your home be this.

Because this is where you'll stay,
this is where you're safe,
this is where they'll love you,
this where you are you.

Im not sure what i was thinking when i decided to read this. I didnt know what i was expecting. To me, i feel like this is about a foster child going into a new home. Kinda sad, kinda happy

I don't really think society is to blame; just the bad people in society. A good share of the population is made of morally respectable people, so not the entirety is to blame. I do agree with you in most aspects, though. This was an interesting read nonetheless... well done here.

Yeah, but this is not criticizing the society. It's just the words one utters to a particularly criticized another, and invites them over to the best of the society and tells them it will all be over. Thank you for reading, though!

This feels rather sinister, in my opinion. I don't know why. I liked it nonetheless. Good job!

Yes, you may assume it's sinister because I did get inspired by the song 'Come Little Children' and some other...Thank you for reading!
