A State of Nakedness

To know the value of people, try loosing one.
To measure the treasure of a relationship, try breaking one.
To treasure a relationship, anticipate a return, and return.
To realize the miracle of life, try witnessing birth.
To experience love, listen to your heart in silence.
To learn the meaning of perfection, watch nature.
To learn how to succeed in life, strengthen the stamina
To assess the power of the stamina, simply undress.
Stripping down those protective layers is an unrivaled challenge.
Undressing is an awkward situation altogether
it starts with dreadful embarrassment,
Picturing the end result makes it daring.
Requiring a sense of self worth,
a consciousness of confidence
and an aspiration for bold adventure.
Venturing forward at a state of nakedness is half the test,
Eventually, the embarrassment vanishes
Some of the fears are blocked and filtered out
A focusing device to create a solitude of aloneness
Realizing that it is the situation and oneself
Holding the hands of The Divine while abruptly surfing the waves
Helplessly beseeching steering direction
Fear must persist and the yearning to a comforting becomes natural.
This very journey relinquishes all that was once a comforting
Learning from the past
Leaning on the past
Easy it is to simply dress again
To embrace what you had and live it all again
Yet, a new meaning emerges audaciously
Freedom justifies all means and ends
Undressing becomes a sweet temptation
Rising the self to a new challenge to stand still
Creating that sense of an obscure thrill
Submission to the hands of fate is no longer the only way to serendipity
Because dreams do not accept injustice
and injustice to oneself is the greatest sin of all
Resilience therefore becomes  a matter of survival,
The ability to stand winds, waves, and hurricanes
Standing to defy all conceptions and misconceptions,
It is one's own conception of self is all there is
with a sense of daring adventure, it is all there is
For, a person is all that he's got
Fear will be there and passion shall help overcome
A passion that is strong enough to lead through 
To enable the birth of faith that shall breed endless miracles.
A passion that makes an odyssey ever so lucrative.
