Online has its dangers so does most everything we do, so why are we so afraid online?
It's a scary world
Things go bump in the night
Imaginary monsters
Hiding just out of sight

But in reality, we know
It's all in our head
There are no such thing as monsters
So nothing to dread

Fear of the unknown
The gloom and the doom
Wrapped up in a cocoon
Safe and sound in our room

But is that living?
Really living a life?
There's nothing's in the cupboard
It's a buckle not the flash of a knife

Potential friends, we'll never meet
Could be trolls or worse
Don't reveal who we are
To someone likely perverse

They could track us down
Peeping through our pane
Evil and desperate
Or just a friend to gain

I guess we'll never know
A risk we cannot take
We already have friends
So what if some are fake?

Putting trust in those we know
Rather than a stranger
When it could be someone close
Who'll present the greatest danger
