Dare to live intentionally, creatively, and authentically

Naked

When I edit myself I am dull.

When I edit myself
I am dull.
What would you like me to say?
Who would you prefer me to be?
I dive into the pool
three layers deep;
Or five;
And tell you what you hid from yourself.
I am not thanked for this.
You stand there embarrassed
as, for one second,
you are truly you;
but feel naked.

In response:
An uncomfortable silence;
A defensive posture;
A one-two punch,
Buying time to grab a blanket
to cover yourself.
You repay me in kind;
Laying me bare in three words;
And I thank you just as warmly.
