What is it like to be just you
Y outhful with hope filled eyes
O r do you hide yourself from the world
U nder many cover ups
It isn’t always about looking my best
But the most Raw version of me
Will always impress.
Even if it isn’t always pretty
The point is I put myself out there
The Raw me is simply legendary
The bravery it takes to show the flaws,
Because the authentic me doesn’t hide at all
So when you say to show myself with no filter
And I am scrambling for some words to explain
You are looking at me without one.
My words, your clue
That the very real me
I am lying down here
Raw just for you
My words are loud and they pierce
They will never hide, they are not small like nymphs
They have power, and substance, they never give up
Because Raw is fierce
Raw words scream yell and cry for me
When I don’t have the strength to do it
Raw is real.
Raw is not hiding.
Raw is terrifying.
