KEEP QUIET

via Daily Prompt: Stifle

Stifle

If you have the need to stifle
What you believe is true
There must be a reason
Something motivating you.

Holding back the truth
Not sharing information
Just might be the reason
You’re controlling the narration.

What is it you are hiding
That you keep so deep inside?
What is it you’re afraid of
And feel the need to hide?

Is this secret so deep seeded
So ingrained in you
Are you really that afraid
Of what you know is true?

Sometimes being quiet
Will keep the truth at bay
When fearful of the outcome
Best to limit what you say.
