Shed My Skin

SHED MY SKIN…

SEETHING BENEATH THE SURFACE
ERUPTION IS IMMINENT 
NOT A QUESTION OF IF, BUT WHEN
AND THE TIME IS DRAWING NEAR…

FRUSTRATION BUILDING ON THE INSIDE
DESCENSION GROWING ALL AROUND 
YEARS OF TURMOIL FINALLY BOILING OVER
LEAVING NOTHING UNSCATHED IN ITS WAKE

MY DEMISE MAY RESULT FROM MY ACTIONS
AND MY WORDS MAY SEAL MY FATE
CARVED IN THE STONE ON THE WALLS
THAT I INTEND TO BRING DOWN AROUND ME

…UNFORTUNATE BUT TRUE, ARE THE FEELINGS
THAT LIE WITHIN ME
CHAINS THAT HAVE FOREVER HELD ME BOUND
BUT NOW MY STRENGTH IS GROWING AND MY
RAGE TO OVERCOME IS BUILDING
AND THE PRICE WILL BE PAID ONE THOUSAND
 TIMES OVER BY EVERYONE IN MY PATH…

THE TIME HAS COME TO SHED THE SKIN THAT HAS CONTAINED ME,
REVEALING TO THE WORLD
THE REAL ME, THE CONCEALED ME……
AND SOME MAY NOT LIKE WHAT THEY SEE

    Michael, this is so packed full of feeling it leaps off the page at me. I think it's healthy to release this in verse! hopefully this is not offensive to you, but I could hear that as a pretty awesome rap song. peace x

    Thank you. No offense taken, as I would truly like to hear one of my pieces put to music. I would lean a little more toward a heavy rock vein, but would take a rap song if it presented itself. Thanks again.
