day by day
breath by breath
I change
with daily accretions
shedding burdens

each experience
is shedding skin
to grow a new one
more resistant
more tolerant

looking back
I don’t recognise
the person that was me
nor what I have become
life happened somewhere in between

  1. I really like this. I too am on this long journey of shedding burdens and moving a new future. Like you I can barely recall the person I used to be yet there is still so far to travel.
