The Secrets We Hide

© Tiffany Franklin

Published on February 2008

we struggle to have meaning
in this world which we all know
we try but yet we wonder
where we all should go
hidden in the questions
which we can not find
the answers are all hidden
deep inside our minds
hidden in our soul
is the life we try to hide
but in time it will find you
and it will release
all of its secrets hidden beneath
so before it ruins the life you have made
release those dark secrets
and the memories will fade
hidden in our lives are stories left untold
of the things we didn't want them to know
but once you tell somebody
and make your feelings known
the struggle will be over
and you'll finally be home

I am in 7th grade and my story is that I just like looking at poems that are meaningful because it makes me feel better and it also makes me think about God a lot more often and that's what I really need to start doing with my life because I have done things that I am not proud of doing.

Hi I have an English Anthology project and I was looking for a poem and this one caught my eye. I must say the author did an amazing job. I hope everyone in class can learn a thing or two in my class from this.

I chose this poem because it related perfectly with my theme which was "Releasing secrets will in time set you free from you pain" I really enjoyed reading this poem and I believe other people will also.

I am a Senior and for my English class we are finding poems that we like and have to write a personal feeling towards the poem. I think this poem is great for me because I have many struggles in my family and I always avoid talking to people about it because I'm afraid of what they would think. The struggles I go through every day are a big part of my life and by reading this poem, it makes me realize I should let certain people in and not be embarrassed of sharing the truth. If I did that, than maybe I would feel better about everything. I think this poem would be helpful for many people.

I am ninth grader and in my creative writing class, we had to find a poem, come up with three questions about it and have a class discussion. When I went up to have my class discussion at first nobody understood the poem, so the teacher told me to read it again. After I read it the second time people started to get it. they said that the poem meant that we needed to release our secrets and keeping them to ourselves was not good. Many people said that they could relate to this poem and the author did a great job. I really liked this poem and I thought it meant something, so the author did a great job writing this poem.
