shed

i shed my skin
again and again
but i keep coming out
the same.
beneath this sun
i might blister
for the need of different,
for the need to cast away
my self.

i shed my skin
again and again
but its my centre that needs to go.
it is that black core
hidden away
that needs to be exposed
that it might wither
with the heat of it all.
