Transcending The Silence

Do you have a secret

that’s never been told

Deeply within you

like long buried gold


Do you keep your own counsel

for no one to hear

While staying intrepid

admonishing fear


Do you treasure those moments

in spite of the time

As words born an orphan

adopted in rhyme


That one treasured secret

alive roaming free

Transcending the silence

—of what’s yet to be
