“My conscience plays upon me now”…

What are we afraid of…
The dead will tell no lies…

Everything we’ve hidden…
All the things that we despise…

Like skeletons in the closet…
Locked away from view…

Each of us has them…
Every year we add a few…

Memories so painful…
Of all the things we did…

Darkest black and secret…
And all we were forbid…

We knew what we were doing…
Had the freedom of choice…

The fruit we ate was bittersweet…
Laced with Satan’s voice…

Now we keep them quiet…
And try hard to forget…

Moments where we came undone…
Actions we now regret…

But memories cannot hurt us…
Unless we let them out…

So keep them locked up tight…
Don’t succumb to inner doubt…

Accept we all have demons…
Not one is beyond reproach…

None of us are flawless…
As we ride in life’s stagecoach…

It’s part of the experience…
And all part of life’s plan…

Temptation comes in many forms…
For either women or a man…

*

But Eye know what you’re afraid of…

Eye see it in your eyes…

Everything you’ve hidden…

All those sins you can’t disguise…

I could relate to them in many ways.Did you write them??? If not who is the author of these amazing pieces of literature???

    If you don’t respond I understand, and will still appreciate your contribution to music and poetry here on your blog. Thanks J.W1GGY “The Versifyer”

  2. How sadly true… I often wonder if it is the skeletons we keep locked in our closet that make us lash out at other’s flaws. As if we can judge someone harshly enough for their error it might make us feel safer about our own mistakes. Thank you for another beautiful poem!!
