Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Five Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...


Shoulda… Coulda…. Woulda…

Told you, but … I didn’t.

Secrets…Denial at its best: Hidden, Shameful, Painful…

Desperate people do desperate things…

Secrets…Lies Rule…Cautious steps, Calculated Movements, Force to live the Life of a Liar just to be a Survivor.

Secrets…God Knows. Silent lips, unspoken words, restless nights…

Like to tell, can’t tell…Floodgate of Hurt to an ear, to a heart, to someone faithful.

Secrets…Heavy Burden, Heavy Steps, night and day time sweat.

Walk alone, feel alone, would like to talk but once again have to walk.

God Knows conditions that led to Secrets being fed and the one you love being misled.

Not the true you, not the real you, only the troubled, prideful you, trying to survive…Not trying to give Justification for having to tell survivors lies.

Only God understands and Forgives Survivors who are forced to live the life of a part-time liar.

Secrets…Mask of tears, heart that really cares…Got to keep going until the pain stop growing.

Secrets… Written in the Past for the Future…

May Understanding and Forgiveness find itself in the Eyes and Mind of those who have read this Secret, because it is the Declaration of a Survivor.
