A Secret Thought

I had a secret that I did tell

I told the pen, it kept it well,

But then I told it to mankind

And my condemnation I had signed. 

 

On a page the words will stay 

Small and silent they obey,

But with Man the words will out

Whether whispered they will shout.

 

I had a secret that I hid, 

Nobody knew, nobody did,

In me alone could I confide 

My own thought which I could hide.

 

And in silence the secret grew

My lone thought that no one knew,

But then one day my secret yelled 

And then my secret I did tell.
