Poetry: Naked

Poetry: Naked by Liam

As I’ve stumbled forward into today

Clothed in the rags

Tags and ripped pieces of the past

It’s these sad torments

My well known companions of sorrow

I’ll slough off

I’ll now undress

I’ll now strip away

Stand naked with thee

Before my soul

Arms our stretched and cry, “Free”

I am Free

My body beautiful is a gift

From God through birth

My soul chose this place, magnificent to live

My spirit embraces these three

In this communion recognize

How much joy life has in fact given

Us to see

Through that pain

I now have learned to laugh

To be me.
