  • I am a secret keeper.
    Others tell me their secrets, because they know that their words will never pass back through my lips.
    What they do not know is that theirs is not the only latent whispering I keep.
    I hold my own secrets, tight and close to my core.
    Upon telling me, their secrets become mine as well.
    I hold the dark, shameful secrets that they cannot.
    And I will never tell them, for I am a secret keeper.
    I will keep the secrets that trouble me.
    I will keep the secrets that cause me distress.
    I will keep the secrets that will destroy myself and others, because I am the secret keeper and my secrets must not be told.
    No matter how wonderful, no matter how terrible,
    Your secret is safe with me.
