Let me tell you a secret
Most contradictory statement ever
Made by the immature
Only the mature can keep its honor

Information idea or incident
From opening the soul finds its origin
Does not have a destination
Guarding it requires determination

Foundation is trust
Respecting it a must
Basic requirement being loyal
Passed on an act of betrayal

Not a stock to be traded
Valuing it an act of sin
Championship not to be won
Like a trophy paraded should be berated
Not an autograph to be exchanged
One person to another
Shows complete lack of character

Information is power
Adds value to holder
Not a struggle for one upmanship
Total lack of sportsmanship
Not a gift in times of rift
Gifting even not an option

Not a movie to be previewed
Word of mouth not reviewed
Not news to be sold
Should be treated on par with treason

Fear of being judged disclosed
Skeletons in the closet exposed
Reason for a decision stated
Action of the future confessed

Taking in a hushed tone
Calling one to come alone
Waiting for one to leave
Stopping midway as one arrives
A secret Is at play
Your business or not
Stay away

Eager to know somehow
for gossiping
Digging deep treasure seeking
Eavesdropping for information
Emotional blackmail
If all other fail

What you dont know
Cannot hurt
Revealing and Recieving
Not in its worth
Another mans misery
Not in your trajectory
Any such transaction
Only path rejection

Heart is light
Each to his plight
Bow to the person
Who will rather die
Than share this information

Like Duty
No parity
Surety is integrity
Safety guarantee

Stays within
Dies with
No myth
Basic truth
