Bare and Exposed

Bare and exposed to the world’s eye

Defenseless and not feeling shy

Honest and pure for perception

Welcomed spirit in reception

Knowledge given gently and doesn’t feel imposed

Open gifts to observe, offered bare and exposed


Vulnerable, though still prepared

Adventure starts making one scared

Many horizons to explore

Passion igniting and implores

Keep a strong faith. With Life, you’re always capable

Feel with open acceptance, be vulnerable


Bared and exposed, ready to grow

Observe around you for Life’s show

Hardship and ease are encountered

Never let values be deterred

What’s of no real advantage can now be disposed

Develop what’s of use to you, be bare and exposed


Searching for truth is an ardent adventure where one must prepare to be open and pure. Preconceived thoughts must be left behind to accept what’s new. Though we often fear it, we must choose to be vulnerable and prepared for the unknown. Fears arise and the more we explore the more passion ignites with curiosity. Faith is required to find truth, as we are all capable. We can all openly accept, even when vulnerable.

To be bare and exposed is to be determined to grow and ready to observe all Life has to show. Hardship and ease are encountered, and it takes willpower to remain on track. Stay rooted in values and dispose of all that proves no benefit. Develop on who you are and remain open to what you will grow into.
