Thick Skin

Thick Skin

A Poem by KaoticOrder
"

Most people with thick skin really just have a lot of scar tissue.

"
It's funny how I cried out all my tears
Though I thought the flood was never ending at the time.
I chased away my fears
With cigarettes and bottles of wine.

Words that used to cut deep
Now don't effect me so
Walking around like I'm asleep
because somewhere along the way I lost my soul.

You can't break through my flesh
In one ear, then eaten by my brain
Cut the skin as a test
But the results will always be the same.

Sometimes things get in
But they don't get very far
I have thick skin
Because it's covered in scars.

This is very true. The more battered we are the less we feel the battering.
