“Layers of Darkness”

Layers of darkness 
envelop my being.

I slough off one
each dawn
like a snake molting
its old skin

And welcome
a new sun. - vipanjeet

Note: The simile of “a snake molting its old skin” suggests rebirth, spiritual growth and immortality. The poem urges readers to discard the baggage of past and welcome a new dawn each morning.
