It’s as if I could finally get out of this skin I wore that wasn’t mine

I started peeling away slowly

The insecurities went first

Then the hurt

And after it the guilt

I continued to peel away at much more

I will not deny that it stung

But it’s hard to get rid of something that you have lived with even when it hurt you

Even when it took away your dreams

Even when it made you believe you were not worth anything

I am still peeling away

Because there is a lot I need to get rid of

But near my chest and breast

Right above my heart

I can see my new skin emerging


And excited to come out
