A Secret

Can you keep a secret
If I told you, would you tell
Or would you hold it
With your mouth 
Could you control it
Would you could you 
Seal it and never open
I don't want to relive that moment
Rather leave it unspoken
If you had a token or that heart
Would you keep it a secret, so you wouldn't tear it apart
I trust you to do what you say you're going to do
And that's keep it 
I don't want you to reveal secrets 
For we all have them 
Some we are proud of
Some we are not
Some secrets we want to be forgot 
And even if we can't forget
Don't share secrets you'll regret 
Sometimes we need to vent 
Don't share things that will make you resent on another 
Some secrets are meant to be kept ,to yourself 
No matter how much you want to 
Can't tell no one else 
Please promise you'll keep it
I mean a secret

The Voice behind the pen
The pen and the paper
The paper and the pen
You can rewrite your story
From the beginning to the end
Erase it , rough draft
Direct your path
Who can explain the pen better
Than Ms. Concetta
