Rawness/Vulnerability

I came across this video a couple of days ago and it touched me deep down in my soul. In this day and age, it is difficult to find music that goes beyond the surface but when you do find it, it is gold. This song, this video, everything about it screams to me. Sometimes, when I see nudity in music videos, I am turned off but this video is just completely different. This is art. These people are being raw. They are being stripped to nothing because they are showing their souls. if my soul were to be reflected on my outer body, I would probably be naked. I am raw. I am vulnerable. I am not afraid to be seen for what I am. i can’t even help it even if I tried. I hate it some times. It annoys me that I cannot be cold or hide my feelings or shift it to the back burner.

However, I know that though I may have my shortcomings, bravery is not one of them. To be able to show myself even when I know that I may get hurt, that is not the easiest thing in the world. This video is me. That is who I am. That is my soul speaking out through the words of someone else.

And oh, how I love the sound of it
