drop off thick skin,
fall off like rain
while showing your sins.
invoke my laugh,
crumble once ignored.
reveals your soul.
Keep my head high
keep you so stuck,
wishing ill will,
gives you the worst luck.
hiding your face.
I look away,
my life fills with grace.
ties you in knots,
setting me free,
I fly to my spot.
– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy
