I molt and a shell remains.
Published:
This piece defines the paradox of my existence where I struggle to constantly change myself and stay true to myself simultaneously. It is a comment upon how every time a person tries to become someone they are not, they lose their true selves bit by bit leaving behind a part of them. Shell represents a part of my true self left behind after an attempt to become perfect in my own right.

I cast my shadow
Unveiled the repressed desires
My own personal perfection

Search for the triangle
Change is near
Weary of the same expectations

I molt and a shell remains
Losing a fragment of my true self I cherish
Paradox of my existence
