What’s the Risk

We travel this path
Exposed
here, I sit exposed
for what I am
for knowing that
regardless
of what you
or anyone thinks
here is where I am
and this is all I will ever be
and that
is perfectly okay
Honesty
bites
at the edge of my brain
gnawing at all that is unseen
it chews into what is obvious
and lets through
glimpses
of what is behind
what might be
no
but of what really is

Chance
is what I take
every time I put
myself on the line
soul visible to naked eye
and
fear is what lives inside
every time
I let you see
that which is
the reality me.
