Daily Prompt – Layers


I’m peeling away the layers, to get to the real me

Thought they’d peel off easily, then I would be seen

But my layers are stuck tight you see, covering deep inside

It’s not a simple thing to do and some of these are lies

I’ve cut off little bits of me, that I didn’t want to know

Put them somewhere far away, I couldn’t really go

And now I want to find myself, face up to good and bad

It’s going to take up all of me, at times it will be sad

But I’m a girl, determined, I want to put it right

I will not tolerate it now, if things are out of sight

I am the sum of all things whole, I have to be just one

I will find the depths of all of me, now I have begun
