The Rationale Behind No Pants

Taken from the pursuit of happyness
The purpose of a Lenten sacrifice
Is to take on some personal challenge
To make you a better person.

And being a better person does not
Only mean improving how you relate
To others, but could mean improving
How you relate to yourself.

By not wearing pants,
I am forced to just deal with
My insecurities more constructively
Than just putting pants on and pretending
Everything is okay.

It makes me own up to how
I feel about myself.

I'm getting used to the idea
Of people seeing my legs
All the time.
And I'm getting used to me
Seeing my legs all the time.

And it's weird.

But strangely liberating.
