Clouded no longer

A Poem by JRB

standing naked to her own truth, her eyes are open





Tonight she stands unclothed

Naked to her own truth

Her mask of deception

Woven tightly


Slowly starts to unrivaled

 Becoming removed and discarded

By her obscured pragmatism

Shattering its manipulation


Fastening us together

Against this need to reconnect

To unravel parts

Of our detached selves


That was hidden away

 By the time of

Years passed



The importance of her words

Spoken softly in the echoing halls

Of injustice

Fills my thoughts with inspirational intent


Separating justice only

Thru the apprehension

Contained in the journey

About to be traveled


The intents buried

Deeper than the pleasures

Waiting, drowning

In a sea of confusion


Branches reaching out

Offering shelter

Harbors of safety

Leading to her


Naked no longer

Clothed in the wealth

Only gathered in knowledge

Obtained thru truth


She stands there

Opened arms

With a heart

That follows

Clothed in the wealth
Only gathered in knowledge
Obtained thru truth

Each piece is a tale unto itself and yet I see a thread of connecting awareness through them too..
