NaPoWriMo 18 : Prompt (1) : Secret Pleasure/ Secret Shame

1. Write a poem that is based on a secret shame, or a secret pleasure

A secret shame or a secret pleasure?
The secret shames or the secret pleasures?
This one or that one
So many buried under the avalanche of memories
Sometimes I rake one up
Some harmless, innocent ones
And some not so pleasant
Some real awkward that I shudder with shame
And some bring a smile
On my face
And then I realize
One just cannot grow up too soon
One shall commit the deeds of
Folly of innocence and ignorance
There is no skipping to maturity
One stumbles and falls
Before one takes steps of
Confidence and cognizance!
