The Secret

There is a secret
I’m required to keep.
I hide it for them
I bury it deep.
A cancerous secret
destroying my brain;
killing all happiness
leaving just pain.
.I’m not ever allowed 
to utter a word;
no one must find out 
what evil occurred.
A monstrous secret
that is hidden away,
they lie just to keep it
to this very day.
Their terrible secret
fights me for control.
I’ve attempted to free it
but, it’s sewn into my soul.

    Hi Jenni –

    This is actually a SPECTACULAR poem. Let me ask you: have you kept the secret to this day? Your words flow wonderfully from beginning to end and it makes perfect sense to me. LOL. Now that is an accomplishment. 🙂

Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare The truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare. -Voltaire
