In the world today

we need thick skin

they say

how thick

can our skin get?

Mine seem to

have disappeared

all together

these days

my vains are

unprotected

my feelings

unexpected

exposed

my eyes

bleed tears

whenever and

wherever

we need thick skin

in the world today

they say

life’s needles

go right through it

anyway
