A Simple Metaphor

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.

Alone, we live our lives as we travel an uncertain path, slowly along the way.

    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.
