Just under calm exterior sits
Angst, anger, desire, exhaustion, fear, inadequacy, lust, pain, regret and sorrow
Dressed in garments of happy, joy and peace states

Self expects warm outer layers to transform the sullen rags beneath into regal robes
Hoping that undressing will not reveal the tattered rags beneath

To undress in the mirror without cringing
To accept without tears the inferior man-made materials borrowed
Stitched together through fading hands of an invisible time
To behold the beauty in the imperfections
To stand naked and inhabit the self contented
Ego vanished

To feel the love released and embraced when revealing skin
