Shame

Standard

Born naked
Born Free
Born without
A need to be
A bearer
Of such pockets
I accrue
To put the things
Of me into
Too heavy
To put down
So much it
Can’t be cast aside
Too greedy
That I just can’t hide
So needy
That I just can’t find
The innocence
That served me once
To be
Without this shame
Or secrecy
Born free…
