The message in Naked is an unspoken promise life will improve, things will change, with a positive outlook, faith in your soul and love in your heart – tomorrow is a better day. Regardless of how gravely a poem may come across at first reading the thoughts embodied the message are positive. God is answering, not with a whimper or with a roar, but silent and tame. Naked touches on sensitive subjects in today’s society, such as rape, child abuse, suicide, and depression. More traditional poems and prose of faith, God, angels and prayer grace these pages as well. The work strives for well ness of mind and spirit as tolerance of diversity is devotedly encouraged.
