Look!


As a child I learned
that there is something shameful
in being a man
in being a woman.
Don't look!
Don't touch!
Don't think!

I lived my life
looking, touching and thinking,
secretly.
I was ashamed of the beauty I saw,
the beauty I felt,
the beauty I imagined,
secretly.

Looking at a beautiful scenery,
a masterpiece of craftsmanship,
or a scientist's conception
ignited my imagination.
Safely.
Free of shame.
Free of my deep-seated nature.


Finally I grew to be a man,
a masculine creature without shame.
Looking at a woman brings joy,
deep joy the creations of man
can not produce.
The shine in the eyes,
the warm smile on the lips
and the touches of the soft hands
are the gift of the feminine.

The shine in the eyes,
the warm smile on the lips
and the touches of the strong hands
are the gift of the masculine.

Look!
Touch!
Think!
Openly without shame,
with love,
healing the masculine
healing the feminine.
