serpent tears

that snake

will shed its skin

and not one tear

it does not fret

and regret

nor become upset

it knows better

it moves on

with less friction

and that bird

with its molting

does not turn to moping

and that tree

does not weep

as the sap seeps

as the leaves fall

at its feet

it does not linger

nor wallow

for what fell fallow

it is too busy

making its way skyward

nature does not grieve

for what it no longer needs

are you clinging to a suit

that no longer suits?

and now is your identity

befitting

limiting

ill-fitting

and better off

shed?
