The skin I'm in is an diversion to the eyes
it averts from the emotions running through my insides
you see from the outside looking in, you can't tell
that from the inside looking out, I'm screaming for help

Help from the mind that enslaves me
and keeps me from unleashing my creativity,
help from the mind that has caused a drought
in the wondrous talents granted from my father

The father that has given me this mind
this body, and soul, to find
to discover, to use the gifts he instilled in me
from the very beginning of my life

This very, chaotic, lonely life that I use
as leverage to write about the abuse,
the pain, my brain is causing,
the abuse that has damaged my creativity

The creativity that now flows out of me
like honey dripping down the bark of a tree
and I owe it to the mind,
the body, the soul, the skin I'm in

The skin I'm in is not a diversion to the eyes,
but an eye opener to the lies
my mind forces me to believe
but now I know I can relieve
myself of the blasphemy
and show the world the product of my creativity
