Shedding This Layer

Soul Poetry

Its getting too warm,

...too stiffling,

like wearing a down coat,


I need to strip myself

of this suffocating state,

....purge myself,

from this smothering

of my soul.

I need to peel back this layer

and lay bare,

my fears.

Skin this pelt,

of insecurity

from my being

and uncover the innocence,

of 'self.'
