my intimate thoughts secret,
You whisper “don’t tell a soul”
but my soul needs to speak.
I listen as your thoughts creep into my mind
“Harbor it all inside for doing this keeps the world out”
but I don’t fear the world as you do,
it feels warm like sunshine on my face.
Thoughts, feelings and memories fester
if I don’t let them willingly spill out.
Forgive me for not heeding your counsel but
secluding my words would make my heart and spirit decay.
I venture out on paper and become alive,
scribbling my confidential desires to
whomever’s ears they choose to reside.
I will speak my truth, keep yours silent if it pleases you.
I am on a journey. Looking for Me. Everyday I get a little closer. The more time goes by the more I realize I'm always changing. This journey could take forever... Renae L. Soler
