Some are too afraid too take a good look at themselves and some just can`t take the feeling of being imperfect.. why? take a day of and look at yourself from the outside and maybe after a while you will beyond all the things that scare you see the beauty

Back in the sand

Is it within you
the power to be..
be beyond your shell?

Do you see it
The hope inside..
your rock hard soul?

Will you take
The ultimate chance..
To be vulnerable?

How would it feel
The supreme journey..
To be looking at yourself?

Could you take it
The vision..
Your cruel reality?

Or would you as the rest
Feel your weakness..
And bury your head?

Back in the sand

I like the unexpected interconnected ideas of a "rock hard soul" being a good thing (though you may not have intended this), in contrast to sand--a soul "hard" (i.e., strong or firm) enough to be vulnerable!

PS: Nice to see you resurface on the bay!

A powerful poem with a profound message. Looking into oneself without bias, with eyes of truth does take courage but in the end
the person themselves are rewarded with knowledge and insight and then in turn they will be a better person. : ) kathy
