Unashamed (Audio)

Listen to “Unashamed” by clicking here.




If I could,

Reach into your heart,

If it were a possibility,

To make you feel for thirty seconds,

Completely unashamed,


I believe I would resist the temptation to turn things my way,

You do not need my assistance.


I believe in you now!

You know who you are,

I see you shining in spite of what looks not right in the world,

Your world,

Remembering that beneath it all,

We are whole.


For in our essence,

We are unashamed to shine,

Unashamed to run blind,

Straight through the dark woods,

Trusting the way,

Clothed only in the truth,

Wearing garments made of leaves,

Adorning nature as she weaves,


Unashamed cuts the illusive cord,

An illusive cord,

So bold to claim its hold,

Upon a soul,

Your soul- empowered and completely,

completely unashamed.

    Very nicely said, CJ. Ah,… the lessons we never had to learn as children – and forgot as we grew older.

    Thanks for taking time to listen and write a comment Gary. Yeah, so much to learn but nothing to learn. Hehehe.

    Enjoyed the expression here . Every listener hears a poem differently ; which makes your audio recording a welcome experience . As for me , I hear the voice of a parent talking to a child in late adolescence on the cusp of adulthood . I like the quiet assurance of ,”You do not need my assistance “. Thank you for this offering .
