Nu Poetry 7-6

No one is infallible.
Anyone can fall from grace.
Just as a twist of chance can take us
from the heights of fame to shame.
For we all carry a secret
that we hope successfully
to hide deeply in our psyche,
praying that no one could see
We hide parts of the past that shame us
in the veil of dignity;
hoping that this guise would save us
from a world of infamy.
But!!!  There is One who rules all,
sees all, knows all,
and it’s he,
who determines if our secret
will go with us to the grave.
