Kinross High School: Shona Young

 

 

Leather Bound

Don't pour your tears on me,
Though please do let them out,
I may be warped enough,
with my frayed dog eared ends

I am temptation to
your nosey sister, mother or friend.
I'm only under lock and key;
is that enough to keep your secrets ?

I contain a thousand questions,
I withhold a thousand answers,
I know you inside out,
From your back page to your front cover.

Mine says it all.
Private! Keep Out!!

I am the keeper of secrets,
The sharer of your woes,
I am the one who helps,
I am the one who knows.
