Peel back my skin

Disect me like a butterfly

Read me like a book

Take my final sting like i am a bee

As i gasp with my final breath i took


Passionate as the week is long

To never quit until the task is done

To improve with every mistake I make

To collapse from when all is won


To inhale madness like it’s oxygen

Filling entirely my lungs

To bounce off the walls 

Just to exercise some fun


You think you know me now

From observing afar

Peel back my skin look inside

And reopen my scar!


My new book “Rhyming poetry to change your day” is now available in paperback


Follow me on Twitter @listerslyrics join me guys and girls!
