New skin

pink wax orchidsIn response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “New Skin.”

If there was one thing I could take

From the attributes of a snake

I’d like to learn to shed my skin

Periodically, with a mischievous grin

Turn over a new leaf and appear

More charming, confident, without any fear

Hide for a while my gaping flaws

With the new skin providing camouflage

There are scars within that throb with pain

Visible, they mock me in disdain

If made invisible, I can maybe

Forget the pain they arouse in me

A new skin, like a new, improved facade

Projecting a vibrant personality, a warm heart

A metamorphosis of the best kind

A change of perception, a cleansing of mind!
