The toll of the secrets we keep.

We hide them in our minds,

Information we keep that we are not sure others would know.

Things we have seen and heard,

Places we have been and the Truth behind white lies.


Some wrinkles are from laughter,

Others from secrets kept.

Everyone has them,

Yet some are not ours to keep.


The weight can lead a person to weep.

Break the hearts of those who keep.

Still it is Truth that reveals and sets free.

So what are these secrets that we keep?


Are they so precious,

Or is it simply easier to tell the lie,

Rather than the embrace the pain of the Truth.

In the end it is you who will decide,

Whether you tell the Truth or allow others to believe the lie.
