Naked Fear Exposed

I was taught to bow my head in prayer.

Yet

I cannot bow my head and close my eyes

While there are things

That beg of me to lift my head and make a plea.

Eyes wide open

Scars and bruises bared

Naked fear exposed.

My voice is whisper soft

While my heart is screaming.

I cannot bow my head and close my eyes.

I cannot.
