A Poem by The High Poet



Hang my skeletons in my closet

I had a key but then I lost it

My secrets are what hold me back

What is this I truly lack?

Using drugs to forget my past

Always wanting one more blast

One led to two, to three and four

I just can't not do this anymore!

Time to search and find my key

Face my past and stay in me

No more time to run away

This time I must stand and stay

Very honest. I think we all have secrets that we lock away and "forget" about. I liked the imagery in it. Good work!

you are not alone in these hidden secrets - if i can let go of some of the things in my past and stare them on i think i will be healthier and more resilient and receptive on other things that i've got to deal with
