undressing…

undressing

what
will you do
without that cross
to bear
that visible sign
of your purity
the white religious banner
you tightly wrap
your true thoughts in
as if wearing
some
supportive undergarment
to give
your life
the right shape
what happens
at night
when
your remove it
who
do you see
in the mirror
and
who
lies
beside you

  1. everything we can just so remove and put it on again like a garment or a piece of jewelry is not really what we’re really convinced of with the depth of our soul..right…?

  2. i like the idea of our supposed beliefs giving us shape… and that, if they aren’t *really* how we think, we take them off at night with our clothes and our pretenses. what shape have we then? a thought-provoking piece…
