No One Said

No one said
nor did they show 
the way to glory 
all beauty to be bestowed  

All was hidden 
deep inside 
barely known
to anyone outside 

you say 

Why would this be? 

No one says 
nor did they show 
how to get there 
the way to go 

No one said 

No one said 
this I know.

No One Told ~ Illustration by Patrice

No one told, no one said
the secrets hidden deep
beneath my childhood bed.

Monsters and thoughts
so deep
didn’t make sense
to a little child trying to sleep.

Only my mother and father
could keep
those things below
my mattress and my sheets.

Letting me just spend the night
counting sheep.

No one said
You have to be perfect
The best you have to be
That’s up to you
That’s for you to see
Cause all you can do
Is be the very best you
You want to be.
