Always question

the secrets you clasp tight to your chest

those protected in darkness.

Reflect on whether

it is only through fear of overwhelming others

with the pain which others sought to overwhelm you

that you stay silent.

If so

it is not your secret you’re keeping

it’s theirs

and it is not your shame you’re carrying

it’s theirs.


you do not have to shout it from the rooftops

just know that freedom lies on the other side

of leaving the burden to the one

who brought it to being in you.

May they take it in silence or be judged for their crimes.
