Let me see you. All of you. The bits you want hide.
Let me see the bits beyond your coverings of pride.
I don't want to take from you or even to give.
I just want to see the parts that truly make us live.
Nothing shows me who you are like the kindness in your eyes.
Take off those sunglasses, stop trying to disguise.
Your heart says more about you than your words could ever do.
So let your greatest honesty be revealed to me and to you.
If we keep our distance now we may feel safe for a while.
Yet then begin to feel the pains of separation behind our smile.
No pleasantries or passivity for the awakening rebel heart.
You may not know where your going but here is a lovely start.
