Stripped

To feel ugly and raw, Stripped of all armour but conviction in the strength of unwavering vulnerability

is nothing if not strikingly beautiful.

To invite shame and ridicule to salt your wounds, and expose the blood you had once believed stifled and muted:

for sure, there is a Goddess is at work - She, who breathes the same air as all other Women, and feeds the revolution by uttering one truth.
