Process of Unraveling

stripping away the layers
after years of masks
upon masks

revealing ego’s many faces

is a painful
yet rewarding process

be prepared
to meet many versions
of yourself
that you do not like

some faces you may not remember
tying on, to begin with

peel them off
one-by-one
until you reach
the sleeping child
at the center

slap that little fucker awake
