Naked We Come, Naked We Go

Why are the most beautiful clothes
such a pain to wear,
while the sloppiest ones
can be a breath of fresh air?
Is it the same reason that
the dirt poor are some of the greatest folk I've met?
Or the fact a rich man
will somehow find it hard to sleep
even in his king-sized bed?
Though carrying leaves and twigs along the ride
we are as rivers that ceaselessly flow.
They sing and roar through each day and night
knowing in their hearts one simple truth,
"Naked we come and naked we go!"

    Sheesh, I think I'm addicted to read your poetry! I hate all the pressure that girls must go into all these clothes. I just love my T-Shirt, jeans, and converse. All the physical things in life are not that important.

    Caleah... I've never been so happy to be someone's addiction... LOL! Perhaps that might sound a bit weird... I can feel our minds merging with all your thoughtful comments and similar attitudes towards things. Beauty isn't something you wear... it's something you chose to have inside of you.

    Naked we come naked we go and a bit of naked along the way. Not in public lest we be arrested. Sorry for the silly your message is a good one.

    That would be even worse. Imagine being naked in a jail cell, with a bunch of hardcore criminals? He he he... never apologize for the silly my friend!
