The Unveiling


Willfully bared veils
Delusional, dropped

Props propping self image
For edification, cropped

Mental enhancers bottled
Unceremoniously throttled

Body shorn of all pseudo baubles
Stood stark proud without coddles

Eden is within and the apple n the serpent
Poison of temptations n sins are what I repent

Skeletal framework thus salvaged
Glistened, still not fully ravaged

Temple of my spirit thus redeemed
Glowed unhindered as I’d dreamed

Light as a feather free unencumbered
Pricking conscience no longer censured

Unveiling journey was hardest one yet
Ripped guts to cut chaff and core beget

Am I selfish, callous, an uncaring iconoclast?
Dregs are true me, rest knowingly I did shed

Today what you see n what I see is what you get
No shams no primping no pimping and no regret

All blemishes, scars, wounds, reprisals, pain
Let go, allowing self to heal, paradise regain

Unveiling journey inwards has finally culminated
I retrospect with peace in heart, vision amended
