and my need to be liked 
In different phrases…

my soul laid naked for therapeutic:
    the individual you created,
    in your picture, Lord, divine…

Assist me discover the hidden magnificence
‘neath the costumes and the masks
worn by individuals throughout me 
  – starting with myself – 
and assist me, Lord, to seek out and love 
your face, unmasked, 
in everybody I meet and know…
