My Own Worst Twin.

Today I wish
To shed my skin,

To seek redemption,
To leave where I've been.

I'll strip away
The shell I'm in,

Layer by layer
Paper thin,

Until my newness
Shines from within.

But my wish is too great -
I stay chained to my sin.

No longer knowing
Where I begin,

I peel down to the flesh
Of my own worst twin.
