    I feel naked on a stage, vulnerable to your stares as
    I expose my self to you, showing my inner self as my
    heart and soul are on display trying to be the real me,
    without the games people play, and the pretense that I
    will stay. As I strip away the layers of myself, I feel you
    eyes roaming here and there like a kaleidoscope shifting
    to each color that I am, as you begin to look you will see
    he blue colors in my life were pain had resided. The greens
    that gave me the peace such as a rainbow after a pouring of
    rain, the reds that was the fire that burned within or the blacks
    that occurred when I felt I was in a dug hole and did not want
    to ever come out again. You see the labyrinth from paths difficult
    to follow, as you look closely my eyes will reveal the secret screams
    causing me to holler as my pride became a double dose of my own
    shame I had to swallow. As I stand here naked and proud, I am glad
    I exposed all of me, because your face tells me that now the look of
    blame that was previously on your face, has now taken its own shame!
    there surely aren’t any skeletons in my closet and I am free to be me, with
    the peace of knowing I have not participated in the silly games people play.

    The question is now what role will you play?
