can’t let go of skin

just let go
hearing that chanted
from the ivory tower dwellers
irked me to no end
no end in sight
for either I fell into struggles
or created them

how do I let go of my skin

the words sunk in so long ago
they only seemed to fade
with the bruises
but they’re all still there
in one mangled heap
unclaimed but not forgotten
when I let go, it will end

but I have more to say first
