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
