You Are a Construction of (for) by Yourself

So, it’s finished. All the millions of loose ends are tucked in, all the bits are added, washed and dried and ready to go. Or not. It looks like a skin that’d been shed, kind of like the snake skins you find behind bushes or caught on nails in attics.

But can you ever really shed your skin? Metaphorically, of course. Can you leave it behind? and do you even want to?  Is it a trap? or is it like your non-metaphorical skin, protecting you (from what)?

Is it keeping you still or providing a foundation to move forward? Is it a construction you made out of fear of the outside world or in spite of it? Is it what you want?
