If you can make your own case
for your own cause

you are unabashed.

When you can speak your mind without trying to offend others, but also without checking for agreement, you are unabashed.
If you (when you) -

step forward without shame
enjoy yourself without apology
grin at others for no reason
eat the pulp of your grapefruit, without sugar


well, then you will know.

Apologize? To Whom? For what?
For enjoying life? For being an optimist?

Is your life unfettered? Do you want it to be?
Make mine unabashed, please.
Hold the remorse.
