True freedom is in knowing that you are in chains.
Not free to show the truth, to admit
to show your real self, to run naked.
People are afraid of your nakedness.
Even your nakedness is judged by society,
handing you a razor, or waxing strips,
or silicone, or a treadmill, or Viagra.
People might as well live in denial.
Nudity is against our culture.
To strip oneself of embellishments,
keeping only those bestowed on us by nature.
Human beings have been reduced to the shirts,
the pants, skirts, dresses, suits that cover us,
cover the seven colors of the rainbow underneath.
