Everybody Knows

That secret. The one you cover with dark nights and dark rooms. The one you whisper in confidence to your closest friend. The one that tears your family apart. The one you explain away as not characteristic of you. The one you are ashamed of. The one that scarred your soul. The one that makes you critical of others. The one you regret.

If it continually plagues you, everybody knows.

The earlier you accept that, the earlier you will be free.

– Osasu Oviawe
