Resolved To Say Nothing (Terzanelle) - Poem by Gert Strydom

What I have learned to know
I will forever keep with me
to no one, of it I will show

something, and hidden it will be
and to others it will stay unknown.
I will forever keep with me,

even if my wife quarrel and moan
where my vision range to the beyond
and to others it will stay unknown.

I will keep to my word, my oath and my bond
even when the grim reaper comes to collect his toll
where my vision range to the beyond,

not even to the most beautiful doll,
I will show nobody what I see,
even when the grim reaper comes to collect his toll

and in honesty, integrity and truth I will stay free.
What I have learned to know
I will show nobody what I see
to no one, of it I will show.
