Secrets

Shame, power, fear, love

The reasons we hide from each other and ourselves

 

Secret lives we keep hidden

Hoping that the world will never be able to peek in

 

But slowly as we grow we decide to include others

Sometimes they stay while other times they may go

 

The purpose of secrets perhaps an attempt to protect ourselves or others

From pain, heartache, embarrassment,

 

In protecting ourselves however

We sometimes hurt others

 

And we always hurt ourselves
