Carrying that story
must get heavy after a while
why do it? why bring it with you?
maybe you should leave it behind.

There are others who may want to know
but you don't have to tell them
you have a choice -
spill the beans or keep the secret

How would others benefit from knowing?
Is it important to utter the words?
Maybe it's better
just to let the dust settle

Big the bigger person
hush - don't speak
there isn't much more to say
other than "I don't know"
