Secrets of Hollywood 

Are we blindsided 

By glitter and lights

Jealousy of wishing?

With all our might?
Is the whole;divided?

Our world and theirs

Fantasy and reality

Is ours to bare?
Faces appearing 

Words spewing accuse?

Has this been happening, 

This terrible abuse?
Why now,  years gone by

Secrets revealing today

Sexual violations 

Abusers having their way.
Don’t know the truth

Or the reasons why

I just sit dumbfounded 

Feelings of wanting to cry.
Written from my heart,

Terry Shepherd
