Robin's Realm




A silent word

One not to be heard

A word that is

so deceiving in life


One that causes

much guilt and shame

The can be so hurtful

they cause so anguish and pain


 The innocent ones of life are inflicted

with the darkness and depths of them

They are not shared

The others are kept

in suspense, waiting and wondering


But amazingly

The secrets come out

Come out in a flurry

of What Ifís and What Was?


When they are revealed to all

The innocent ones always

take the fall


This innocent one has learned

the secrets of within


You tried to run and make

It all look like me


What matters the most

is the Truth

and that I know

I have the knowledge and wisdom

to now know-

Donít Look Back-

Look Ahead

Donít let the secrets

Destroy my Doing All
