The Skin I’m In – Lynn White   Leave a comment


Am I still the same person

under the skin? 

Are you?

I think I am.

The outside has changed.

But inside my skin

I am intact. 

Myself as before.

I think.

Not quite so comfortable, 


It doesn’t fit me too well.

Doesn’t always represent me.

Doesn’t look like I still feel.

Like I still am?

What about you?

Are you still that person 

in your new skin?

I’m not sure now 

if it is only on the outside, 

that we have changed together.
