The Secret

The Secret

Conception deemed me a stranger, 
an untouched chapter that exists in the shadow of your life.
I had once heard the beating of your heart, 
but that was all I had been given.
My birth had unfolded deceit that took away truth
and I have waited a lifetime to know you.
I remained brave in keeping my distance,
if only the wind could carry my emotion to your door,
that the past could unlock and open a future.
Shhh, my name is but a whisper that falls from your lips.
Long ago you gave life without a hand to hold,
they buried your soul through the guilt and shame
and I have become the enemy of truth and mystery.
It is time to walk the path of the unknown
and wave goodbye to being, the secret.
