Keep your thoughts to yourself

You are the savior of your secret cell!!

You spill your thoughts

Expecting them to have a word of say,

Regrettably, they will leave you alone on your way!!

Keep your thoughts to yourself

You are the savior of your mind, 

Juggling in the unprecedented life!!

You say a word 

They raise their sword 

The sword of judgments

Filled with unbreakable prejudice

Scoring the words of a pragmatist!!

Keep your thoughts to yourself!

You are the savior and the only help!!

You speak your mind

They take a knife, to stab your emotions

By spewing the negativity filled with wrong notions!!

Keep your thoughts to yourself

You are the savior, not anyone else!!

You perceive them to be your secret diary,


But dear friend, they are ones cloning your words of worth to be heard by all, as they are captive of the act called fakery.

You perceive them to be your secret diary,

Keep your thoughts, to yourself

You are the savior and the creator of this unbreakable shell!
