How do we respond when some one becomes naked before us?
No, i do not talk of clothes,
but rather the true nakedness of the soul.
Does it make you uncomfortable?
It should, for we are all guarded,
hiding that we do not want others to see,
those UGLY parts,
parts that we think others will dislike us for
or that we think are disfigured.
This is always the hard part,
some one shares deeply,
beyond what is normal.
Not just the hopes and dreams,
but the fears and difficulties.
The gift is given,
some one became real,
How do you respond?
Become naked with them,
do not be afraid,
for we are all the same
and we all are different.
It is a gift.
