Dark unopened rooms
places where no-one dares to go.
Written in letters unsent
trapped in minds; never uttered.
Brushed under carpets
whispered; sometimes through decades.
Life shattering, unsayable things
heartbreaking and unacknowledged.
Painfully suspended in time; never shared
burnt embers of a life half lived.
The healing wings of truth
forever clipped by shame.
Secrets that should have been spoken
lay in graves forever silent.
January prompt-a-day with write alm today’s prompt is – family secret(s)
Today I smiled, and all at once things didn’t look so bad. Today I shared with someone else, a bit of hope I had. Today I sang a little song, and felt my heart grow light, and walked a happy little mile, with not a cloud in sight.
Today I worked with what I had and longed for nothing more. And what had seemed like only weeds, were flowers at my door. Today I loved a little more and complained a little less. And in the giving of myself, I forgot my weariness.
Hope you enjoy reading this, it just has such a lovely sentiment, don’t you think?
All part of my 2012 positive thinking regime folks!
Have a happy rest of your week.
