The stirring aches in the bowels of my soul,
Never soothed only hidden far away.
Felt as if they never were.
Only to be exposed again through the souls of others.
Desperate callings from deep within,
Soaring from instrument to mouth.
Beckoning to awake each person
Encountered by raw beauty.
Wanting to escape
Petrified by thought.
OH! My inner being AWAKE!
Called from the layers of years,
Hiding true identity.
Freedom of worth and value.
Reveal, naked, spirit.
Walking in the glowing skin,
Afraid but willing.
Do not let the layers stop you,
Peel them off.
One anxiety ridden fear at a time.
Laugh, light, exposed.
Leaving a legacy.
