When a bad secret is suppressed, Sorrow feels depressed, An none is by it impressed, So let it never be expressed.

Bury Bad-secret in Heart-casket

Never reveal a secret
If it will surely do harm
Keep it in heart-vault
Give only to God access

Put nails to its coffin
Or totally burn it please
Erase it from memory
In case it is undesirable

If is concealed a bad truth
It brings to all happiness
Nobody loses any treasure
As that truth is a waste

Suppress it very strongly
It must be buried in heart
Let heart deafen its voice
Let your brain forget it

Let the deletion be total
Build never an epitaph
Such a vital destruction
Emanates nice fragrance.

Thanks for your kind comment
I am boosted by your praise
I am honored by your patting
Hopefully I will write better


I like the feel of the poem. And I agree, not all truths should be spoken.
