Never Let It Out

You tell someone
What you're afraid of
And that person
Brings those situations
To scare you now
Then and always.

People tend to use
Your own words
Against you and
Amuse themselves
As you are put in
A helpless position.

It's time to think
And think hard
About what you say
A weakness of yours
You know of it best
Never you let it out.

A very practicable advice that can save us from the perils our owns words make.
You are quite right sir..... Words or secrets casually blurted out can come back to us and hit like a boomerang!
Nicely envisioned. Beautiful poem. Enjoyed.......10
