A Self Poet-trait

I see me dancing in the moonlight
Naked and exposed
My skin shines like alabaster
My eyes flecked with sparks of gold

I give worship to the one-ness 
From an alter most would curse
For to some I am a heathen
While to others I am worse

But they refuse to lift the shutters
That brings the blindness to their eyes
My goal remains the same as theirs
I've just thrown away disguise

To see
Can I survive
     A witch's burning

    oohh. scary ending. i like how you portrayed how some people see dancing as the devils playground. those witch burnings were so crazy. great use of this in your poem to say how people don't get you and make you try to conform and inhibit your spirit's freedom.
