Shed

Emotions
are like shedding your skin
shrugging off pain, wounded pride
exposed as a raw nerve
vulnerable to vultures
pecking and clawing
hungry to feast at
the banquet of self-doubt
grow another layer
tougher skin
that guards as armour
from being let down
from disappointment
and snap back
with teeth to send
scavengers running
to assert you are
master of your own destiny
