For there is nothing covered,
that shall not be revealed;
neither hid,
that shall not be known.
[Luke 12:2]

Tell me please -
When is a secret bad?
Does it make you hurt?
Does it make you sad?

What would happened
If it were told?
Would it reveal
An evil person's world?

Should evil be protected
Within the bonds of kin?
Does common genetics
Excuse the worse of sins?

If doing it to a stranger
Would land them in jail,
Why should I be honor-bound
To cover the abuser's trail?

For if they are too ashame
To let the world see,
Then why do they continue
To do these monstrosities?

They say that telling
The truth of what they do
Is a very evil thing
For anyone to do.

They force us to lie,
But what deity praises liars?
Didn't I read somewhere
That they would end in eternal fire?

Why should I burn for them,
When they care not for me?
Why should I believe their lies,
The lies of those who hurt me?

I will find the way
To tell the awful truth -
I know that God has forgiven
The fragileness of my youth.

Only the truth can end
This evil slavery,
But only I can set
My heart and soul free.

Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness
shall be heard in light;
and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets
shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
[Luke 12:3]
