Born Again

Now I’ve stripped away the paint

Exposed the flesh

No longer a Saint

 

The many layers so carefully built

So easy to crumble

Now gray and silt

 

I’ve put away the fake smiles for tears

No one could have guessed

From my “happy” childhood years

 

All control and self is no more

There is just me

Barely a soul

 

Lost, falling, drowning, but not dead

Having to suffer and mourn

Having to live instead
