Favorite Quote:
I was not made with lightness on my tongue to be silenced.


My skin is made of rubber.
elastic smooth,
Indestructible.

My skin is made of rubber
They pelt me and poke me
They stretch me thin
On the verge of tearing me
apart.

My skin is made of rubber.
The more they stretch me
The harder I snap back.

My skin is made of rubber
The darts they stab me with
Leave permanent holes
That can never be fixed

My skin is made of rubber,
But
When rubber meets fire
It melts

My skin is made of rubber,
I was a sticky mess
But now that i've cooled down
My skin is harder than ever

They can melt me again,
Put me into a mold,
But
I will always be
The same rubber
In a different morph

The more you melt me down,
The more I fall apart,
The harder I come back
The more the words bounce off.


My skin is made of rubber.
elastic smooth,
Indestructible.
