Discarded

For a while I felt like

I’d been rescued from a skip

An old piece of furniture

A new lease of life

 

To be restored and polished

And admired once more

A little new upholstery

A fresh lick of paint

 

But then I realized

The parts that were me

Were being stripped out

And thrown away

 

It was only my shell

That could ever remain

My useless insides

Discarded
