The old skin is slowly being peeled off,

It’s a trail of old being left behind,

A new me is appearing more and more as the old skin peels off,

The unhappiness is what’s being left behind,

Slowly I’m shining brighter as the old me is peeled off.


The tears I shed now is of relief,

The tears I shed now is of being thankful,

Less burdens bring relief,

Less burdens make me thankful,

Less struggles make me thankful and bring relief.


No, I won’t ever miss the old me,

For so long I wanted to discard the old me,

Yet the past will always be a part of me,

Those past struggles memories are what I’ll always carry with me,

Those past struggles are what I’ll always be thankful for because it brought out a stronger me.
