A Poem- Secrets hidden in the darkness
There are stories and secrets hidden in each dark corner...
Poetry about growing up and letting go
There are secrets hidden in the darkness
Ones dared not shared in the light
They are the secrets we pretend we do not hold,
The ones that we have allowed to control our lives
They aren’t much good for conversations
They are not willing-fully told
They will just as well make you fall apart-
Just as much as they ever made you feel whole
My secrets in the darkness,
Don’t even share my name
They come from deep within my hell,
And take me for what it is I never thought to take
I tremble in the shadows of the darkness,
As daylight fades to gray
I tremble as I make my way through time
To face the demons I could not save
I left the secrets I must face,
in the shadows hidden away
I make up a time and I make up a day.
I travel back down a path I wish I hadn’t paved.
My skeletons are not in a closet,
They are no longer hidden away.
I have brought my secrets out into the light
And I hold my breath as I prepare to be judged today.
As I stand exposed
Letting my past catch up with me
I carry within my heart
The knowledge that I am finally going to be free.
I don’t do this for the world
I do this for my peace
A peace I need to find within my soul,
So I can finally begin to breath.
I know many will not like what they see
They will not like that I am scarred
They will wish that I kept all my secrets
Hidden away and not shared.
Are the colors of my soul.
They may not make you like me.
But they are secrets I can no longer hold.
