Secrets kept, locked within.

Like your very own, mute friend.

Here you bleed, upon these pages.

Burn with rage and smolder with shame.

Here the truths, lain bare to see.

No lies. No fantasy.

Pain put into words too meek.

Fear written in moments bleak.

Your thoughts, your own to speak.

Freedom found bound within.

Written words that set you free.

Never for a soul to see.

Caged within this Diary.
