Liberation of a Timid Soul---a Poem
Timid and vulnerable to its core
nudity of soul in a life mission to hide
behind its opaque veil, stuck by every back door,
and in its highest moments reluctant to show pride.
This timid soul's biggest of all fears
is that someone may tear every mask down
exposing that puddle of secret tears
and make it look like a clumsy clown.
But brewing inside is a rebellion of a kind
and that giant stuffed into a bottle with old tears
now breaking out from prison with a brand new mind
greeted by life with ovations and endless cheers.
Stretching painfully and smiling with joy,
sensing his likeness to his real looks
he starts dancing like a playful boy
as he sees some lovely people instead of scary spooks.
It's taking someone deep with a treasure inside,
with nothing like its match anywhere to see
with anonymous soul to carefully hide
but taking someone even deeper to set himself free.
