Stripe me of the layers of insecurity
as I move through the changing of time
unwrap my mind to see beyond the
entrapment of the subtle designs
break free from the hollow shell
of fantasy to recognize
there is strength to see
while standing in the place of uncertainty
I will be the one I ought to be.
Strip away the layers of doubt and fear
for they are but an illusion
that test our dare,
to be the ones
that will raise
and be firmly planted in the truth and its security.

About the Poem
We live in a superficial world. However, it is so important that we look at ourselves through a lens of truth and the security it brings.
