My Secret Truth - Poem by Shelby Lanier

There is a mystery
Deep inside my heart
That I dared to not tell a soul
For this secret, to never be apart

It’s so hidden
And covered up so tightly
That is weighs so heavy
There on my chest never lightly

Struck with pain
So that I will not be shown
No one must know this treasure
So engraved upon my own

You may wonder, what is this truth?
That is covered and hidden
From everyone
And secret so forbidden

So alas I shall uncover the treasure from all pain
The pain that runs through me
Through my blood and pain stricken veins
I am afraid….of being loved
Because as soon as I feel this emotion
It is ripped from my soul
And stirs up too much commotion! !

For who am I,
To deserve this great wonder?
The fulfillers along its side
Seems to make it fonder and fonder

However I,
Nor worthy of this wealth,
Deserve nothing more than
Starvation and bath health! !
