Scales

S
I had a skin
Though,
If truth be told
It was more scales
Than skin
Scales sewn together
From shame
To hide myself
But from myself
I could not hide
Snakes can
Shed their scales
But mine?
They stuck and
Nearly strangled me
We met
We hugged
You said
I looked
So happy
Finally
I’d lost
My scales
Perhaps, I’d grown
Into my skin
I was east
Or was it west
Of Eden
In the land
Of no salvation
Yet, there still
Was grace
I’d lost my scales
And learnt to live

As myself
