Secrets

A promise, a handshake, a pinky swear, a nod…. or just eyes that lock in a knowing fashion. It can never be told……or can it?

Feelings are elated, especially if you're never selected. Can you be trusted? Will you be asked again? It's an important task that is meant to be followed through with….are you up for the task? You carry something with you that others are not privy to. Do you keep it close to your heart, holding it inside with its intent, or do you let it go, allowing your desire to share, take the lead?

Feelings are questionable, especially if the person is not deservng. Do you stay faithful to your promise….or does this promise lack the importance of the last? Do you divulge a small amount of the story, and do you betray someone that you love? You carry something with that you want to bestow on another. By valuing one person more than another, are you more easily coerced to bring the mystery to the surface? If you tell, do you feel guilt or accomplishment? Do you become more likeable, or do people despise you more?

Feelings are exiting when it's meant to be surprising. Do you point out the lie, or let juvenile belief work its magic. A Red coat and hat, with a red nosed reindeer that flies him….. Do you reveal what you know, or do you let it take its course? You carry something with you, that you want to always hold near. Do you destroy their dreams, or let the identity be revealed?

Feelings are nauseating, especially when it should be disclosed. Are you ashamed?…Are you scared?…Or does courage shine through? Do you let it lay dormant, or do you speak of the rage? You carry something with you that someone should know! Do you trust another to keep it concealed? Do you harbor the knowledge to save a few, or do you bravely defeat the one you thought you knew?

Does it fester inside, promising to one day release, or do you go to your grave with the promise you keep? Are you faithful and true and above all things stay honest, or are you conniving and mean, never fulfilling what you promised?

How well do you keep a secret???

  1. Good questions. I try hard to be honest because as they say in the 12 step rooms, “you are only as sick as your secrets.” But I’m not always honest, mainly guilty of son of omission. Especially if there is no point in hurting someone over the truth.

    Eek. That sounds bad. Oh well.

    • I think that’s a fairly normal feeling. Anyway, now every time I think you may be beginning to look bad, I picture us in our matching ukranian underwear, and you are immediately redeemed! šŸ™‚ I found them on line the other day and tried to copy and send them, but I’m not as advanced as I thought! šŸ˜¦
