Naked - By Nichola Jade Wong

Naked

Let’s take off our faces tonight,
Remove the layers of skin,
That make us so uptight.
Stand before me; wear nothing but flesh,
Look wounded, every detail of your inner being exposed,
Let me see right through to your core,
Muscles, veins, organs, all that looks raw.
Remove all that is tainted by this world,
That skin, the cloth of prejudice and pain,
That voice, conformed to complain.
Let me admire your simple being,
Without voice or skin,
For all that is naked,
I see with fair eyes,
A just equality if only for one night.
