I've always kept things to myself
Sharing only what I Chose,
And to protect my thoughts and feelings
Relied on lyrics and prose.
There's a part of me hidden deep inside
That i keep private just for me,
A small locked area in my soul
I can't let anyone see.
You might think you've broken down a wall
But I've replaced it with ten more,
For every window you climb through
There's always an iron door.
While your reading this journal
Keep this thought in mind
For every story and poem within, hides a memory behind.
This journal is like a master key
To that safeguarded place inside,
That room that I've always kept secret
The place that my soul will hide.
I offer you these insights
The memories yet to see-
With only on confession:
This is the real me.
