A Simple Metaphor Poem by G.R. Gaus

A Simple Metaphor

Rating: 5.0


Naked I came, naked I'll leave,
Naked was I, when first conceived,
Naked I thought, naked I learned,
Naked was I, when first I yearned,
Naked I searched, naked I found,
Naked was I, on common ground,
Naked I loved, naked I'd hate,
Naked was I, when I couldn't relate,
Naked I stand, naked I'll fall,
Naked am I, once and for all.

And this nakedness means that we are all the same underneath - equal. Good write.

A great poem, like you say we was born naked, And on the path we follow through out our life we are sometimes made to feel naked along the way. A great write.
