Living With a Secret

A Newberg honors student was headed to Oregon State University until her secret interfered

All wrapped in fear and good intentions
a secret’s hard to carry.
No-one to blame. No-one to forgive. No
victim, if this is a crime.
Her future’s still unwritten. Her past
is carved in softened clay.
There’s still time for a rewrite. She could be
a doctor, teacher, engineer.
Her real name’s not on this page. We’ll help
her keep the secret.
