How To Be Me

Four friends meet to share their most intimate details of life.
But who knows what we hold back
from each other?
Ashamed of our secrets -- afraid that what we say
will leave us
alone
again.
Just like before
when we 
had our innocence
stolen.

    Sometimes it's necessary to hold back! The truth doesn't always need to be told! A well written piece my friend, Jack
