What hides underneath all those layers?
The layers you got padded with since birth?

The layers you did not get to choose
But accept without questioning

The unwarranted layers
You feel comforted in

The layers
You think
Define you
Your identity
Your being
Your existence

Peel away the layers
My friend

Peel
Layer
After layer
Until
You emerge
To yourself
