the bathtub is where we are most exposed

it’s the place where we walk naked and leave our clothes
on the floor
it’s the white room where we test our
singing voices against wet doors
where we draw in the foggy paint of steam
revealing pieces of ourselves rarely seen
lying vulnerable on our backs as the water massages us
we glean over our bodies, pretending
there exists sexiness

removing imperfections
releasing our flaws
against the hours down the drain
we fight these white walls
in which we contain
our secrets.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."
Marianne Williamson

Yeah. I loved the part about the "singing voices" too. It is slightly humorous yet also very deep and very true. I really enjoyed reading the entire poem.
