Who Would Dare?

by Mark Weinrich

Who would dare
to open up to ridicule?
In this age of carefully
guarded personas,
why would anyone
in right mind 
want to reveal
their true nature.
Who could ever
recover from appearing 
like a fool? The risk 
is simply beyond
imagination that anyone
would desire to be genuine, 
to be vulnerable. Yet
in our Father’s wisdom
He sent His Son 
as a helpless child 
to show 
what true love dared.
