I Walked Naked Through My House Today

| by Patricia Crowe |

I woke up this morning. I was really alone
The pain of this moment I had never known
I threw my clothes on the floor and walked right out the bedroom door
Fear and excitement came as my body felt the air
So I kept heading down, right down the stairs
I stood in the first room. These strange feelings had me torn
I stood there feeling free in the same outfit I was born

I walked naked through my house today.
In my birthday suit.     Hope was taking root
I walked naked through my house today
Then I began to dance ‘cause I knew this was my second chance
I walked naked through my house today
Ooooh, how good does this feel!
It was like hearing God saying, “Girl… peace, be still”

From room to room I went, waiting for someone to say,
“Girl, put your clothes back on, ‘cause you can’t walk around that way!”
But no voices did I hear. I was letting go of fear
Joy and excitement came as I felt the morning air
I didn’t have a worry, didn’t have a care
No worry about my shape or that skinny body type
No (more) feeling fat and ugly (unpretty), no more of that hype

I walked naked through my house today
In my birthday suit. Strength was taking root
I walked naked through my house today
Then I began to dance ‘cause I knew this was my second chance
I walked naked through my house today
Ooooh, how good does this feel!
It was like hearing God saying, “Girl… peace, be still”
