Poetry: “Shedding”

Life can and will change you.



I am a snake
Shedding its skin
Complete reinvention
Every time
I look back in time
At my own face
Look off at the stranger
Behind my eyes
Slither and turn
And lessons thus learned
Tearing the skin
Right off my bones
As time marches on
I continue to crawl
Through all the cracks
Life makes for me
And when they narrow
I know it is time
To shed all my skin
Leave my past self behind
