"Secrets" by Lisa

Shhh don’t tell our secret.
That is what he said.
For letting the secret out
will make Mommy sad.

They’ll know you were bad
and they’ll take you away.
So locked inside
those secrets must stay.

So frightened and scared
she locked them up tight,
Only to have them
come back in the night.

Secrets have no purpose
if you want to be free.
They make you afraid
that someone will see.

They’ll see that your
dirty and so impure.
They’ll see the real you
and then close the door.

Left alone with those
secrets inside,
The self is left fighting
just to survive.

But struggle it does and
it’s light never goes dim.
For the self knows that
the secret belongs to him.
