|"Be Yourself" by David Hudson|
What is invisible to most
Only the heart can see
For when you cover both petals
You can see only darkness.
There is a light in this though.
A light that will shine through,
a light that will reveal
happiness, strength, loyalty,
So many of the things that WE
Take for granted.
Sometimes we let the rain wash it away:
the chalk outlines of our bodies,
the picture perfect scene
in which we can soar in the fake
intolerable presence of our being.
But this isn't who we are.
Shadows do not define who we are,
because we are what we make:
something purer than rain.
If only we took a breath
And in that breath we drew
A make believe heart that captured
Everything, everything that we are.
Would it be then that we would be seen
As a human being?
Nay, for we are what we make.
When we can open the covers
and let out naked bodies shine
this is when we find who we are.
No regrets, but only hopes
No fancy clothes, but personal drag
No pointing fingers, or taking names
For in the middle of the day
We are here to say,
“This is who I am,
“And this is who I will be.”
