Shedding Skin


They laughed at me. They taunted me.


They kept pointing out what was obviously wrong.


I knew it was wrong. Everybody did. So, I used my brain and got out of there.


I used my beautiful amazing brain to figure out just how I would reach where I wanted to go.


In the end I settled for some metal I found in a skip two miles down the road.


That road.


I asked the man two doors down to help me build something out of the junk I found.


He always helped me when I needed something.


He drove me to the pier, once it was finished.


"Goodbye".


I climbed into the beast I had created, making sure it would survive the fall.


I ran off the edge of the pier, and flew into the depths of the ocean.


It was there where I began my long journey to safety.


Finally, when it was just me and the deep blue sea, I started to reveal my old self.


7 months I was inside that creation. Protecting me. 


Now, it was time for me to be free.


It was time for the world to accept me.
