Second Skin

Excuse me,

let me take a moment,

to shed my second skin.

The lies we live,

the troubles we face,

are in our second skin.

Our doomsday thoughts,

our troubled vows,

there they lie within.

The masks we wear,

the roles we play,

are in our second skin

So excuse me for,

a moment while,

I let my life begin.

I would love to make,

this story my own,

so I shed my second skin.
