This Secret Of Mine…

 

A group of writers were challenged to a Write In, Write Out Session. After free writing for an hour, Akiim Jarrett  wrote this spoken word that characterises his gift. Here I share:

Screams, Shrieks and Secrets

 

it screams – this secret of mine-

hidden heartbreak and soul-stirring agony,
so I crave peace.

a peace which remains unbothered

a peace ne’er t’be interrupted;

but these days dreams don’t get fulfilled and life rolls you along with the punches at whim.

 

it shrieks – this secret of mine-

divine calamity a beautiful harmony

can you see it in catastrophic splendor?

a jaw dropping visage,

an image and event to die for-

a living truth I’d reluctantly lie for.

it sounds off – 

like the loud silence insecurities decorate-

a masterpiece that doubt artfully paints

can’t you see?

or will you see how this feels like it’s been before,

karmic justice settling the score-

quote raven or mock the peacock

choose that which haunts less is all I implore

secrets aside – lies do thrive

tis better to release than bury inside.

it can be different

things need not be the same

you can produce the change 
from the inner stain of shame

that brought you much pain.

just be – you – in its entirety

and all good things will follow-

beloved, it’s merely a formality
