Put aside the past of things
Speak not, the tender hearted
For those will think you foolish
For those will think you weak
Do not allow them to judge you
Of a life they do not comprehend
Keep silent of your knowing
And you, they might befriend
For if you speak of demons
And dragons of the dark
You might be thought unbalanced
Not deserving of remark
So keep silent of the past
No one will think you strange
Nothing can come of ramblings
But being viewed of as deranged
------- Author's Notes -------
I was writing to a new friend about my tendency to ramble in my letters and this popped into my head.. My way of telling myself not to ramble.

i find myself rambling many times it's when i start answering myself what i dislike lol..someone very dear once told me "never be afraid to let the child within out once in awhile..have a passion for everything no matter how Karazee or foolish you look " and lately i have applied that to my life.....i like this..

your writing is how I think too. When somebody goes on and on about things that they did or happened to them in the past makes me think they are strange .It's ok to open up but not to strangers or someone you just met, you should trust that person to share your deepest,darkest secrets.
