    What's done is done some might say
    That's all in the past, nothing to do with today
    But here I am in this closet alone
    Trapped by skeletons not made of bone

    Haunting me daily the secrets stay alive
    Preventing me from moving where I deserve to be
    Afraid the secrets will come out for all to see
    Painful is my sentence from so long ago
    Waiting for that time when others might know

    Ugly truths always come out in the light
    So I must stay in the darkness
    No one must know
    Yes, this is my pain
    This is my plight

    I cannot step forward and be a hero to someone
    The cruel smile of the skeleton's face blocks my path
    I'm sorry, the closet door must stay closed
    As I listen to the skeleton laugh

    we are where we come from...

    but we've been known to change. secrets can only keep us down if we let them. open the door to the closet. let the skeletons walk free. rise above what is. often time, we find that things aren't as bad as we think.

    sensitive subject matter, poet.

    continue the flow.
