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
