Lets face it, we as people talk to strangers every day. As a perfectly good stranger practically to everyone else, I’m just going out and about. Just minding my business. Each day in the same way’s as you all are. I’m sure, I may, or may not choose to talk to you, depending on the circumstances. After all, you are being a perfectly good stranger to me, just as I’m trying to be, to you in return. Maybe we are just wishing to be known as a stranger to everyone just the same. Or is it just, when we were smaller, mom’s and dad’s said “Don’t talk to strangers!” But when everyone in the world starts out that way, as the perfect stranger that is. We should be asking ourself’s, should we be talking to strangers…?
I’m the stranger who is looking at you, as you are glanced up at me. Yet both of us are hiding behind our masks. On a good day we chose to be someone, who also has the quality’s in them, to bring the challenges to our ability to play the part. The power of deception, or just to deceive the unsuspecting, is this the challenging sport that we are choosing to play, as we live our life’s? Life seems to be a game, the winner to be declared, only by what we gain for ourself’s with as little effort as possible? Are we then the strangers that are parents warned us about? We are the king of our deceptive worlds covered in our masks of our choosing. Yet everyone may be the same predator of this wild, wild world, of who is who, yet trying to be no-one else, but the king of king’s! The ultimate predator of the unsuspecting! The question should be for everyone else that comes in contact with us, they should ask of themself’s ” should we be talking to strangers..?”
All of us have heard on the news, or prehaps you may read in the news paper, or on the internet, stories of disaster of sorts. Yes that evil! Those evil people who have played out their evil plans on the unsuspecting, those who trusted too much. Prehaps these who were unsuspecting were just lonely souls that longed for some companionship, only to trust in someone wrongly so? The stories of abuse, murder, theft, rape, kidnappings, mugger mugging, gang slayings, shootings, arson, just to name a few. Some may have been by pure chance to have been involved in. But others were just plainly deceived, by deceptive evil plans.These people who would prey on other people’s in this way, are at first only stranger whom maybe just standing in front of you, or is it, just to the side of you!? With the disaster story fresh in the mind, the imagination can run wild, and paranoia can creep into the mind. I’m surrounded by strangers! Strangers who look so normal, who look so much like me! Are they also having the thoughts of looking around at others wondering about, if they could be…..? Do we just consider the evil probability only as a self-preservation tactic? Do we build walls to keep evil from impacting us, or to confine ourself in a self-imposed prison of salutary confinement!? Only just to be remembereding those words spoken as a question ” should we be talking to strangers?
The path way to hell is smooth and wide with a slightly downward sloping angle to it. Yet the minds thoughts may be enticed not to recognize the path, as being a dangerous one, just an easy one. The path to heaven is said to be narrow and a steep, made hard with obstacles in it, as well as steep drop offs on either sides. Needing to be careful not to lose footing along the way! Not everything easy, is worth it! Or so, it has been said. For things to be hard, in this way should give us all a sence of a job well done at its completion. totally for a sence of worth, and an increase of self-worth. So why do we all look for the easy way out, or the easiest way possible to get what we wish for, or wishing only for what we can’t have? Our own thoughts, can be just as confusing to our senses, just the same kind of confusion in looking at those actions of ours, or the true intentions behind those actions. Shouldn’t we be trying to reevaluate ourself’s? What if we do not? Do we then become the biggest strangers to ourself’s? No surprise that we all put a mask on in the mornings before we go out. It hides the demons we harbor, by our own thoughts, trapped in the deepest of dark cracks of our brains. In dealing with those thoughts, we choose our actions for this day. Not knowing the intentions of others that we meet along the way. We put up our guards, and build our walls. With this kind of knowledge should we then ask, Should we be talking to strangers?
The way we see the difference between the darkness of day, or the bright light of night.
This should be our eye-opening experience, as we are experiencing our self-imposed fright.
Just like when we were taught, to color, to stay with in the lines,
Why then… When we are given the chance to color, we just choose the colors of the blind?
The colors of the black and the white, seem to fade with time, into the only color that is gray.
So we convince ourself’s,with no lines to stay in, we gain more space to dance in, this wonderful day!
It is not the first glance that we take into our own thoughts, or into then the abyss,
It is the second glance that sucks us into the total darkness.
Being surrounded by, as well as looking at all of these perfect strangers, and then wondering which ones are worth my time? To be in search of a friend, or a love. To able to make or have experiences with! To share life with! To be able to share those inner most thoughts, or just listening to their’s. But these are perfect strangers! Should I have to evaluate the motives of a perfect stranger? In only having to reassure myself by evaluating your risks, as to who will best fit!? Why didn’t our parents just tell us to beware of others and the motives they must have. certainly they must have realized, that we all start out as strangers, untill our first spoken words to each other! Or were they just telling us to beware of the stranger with-in? Should we be talking to strangers?
All the best!
