Unequip?

 

you needed
this mismatched ensemble
of mail and plate and the thickest
skins back then
before you found
your identity, abilities and traits
before you learned new skills
and chose your allegiance, yourself
but now
those layers you assumed
for increased defence
now they only restrict
your dexterity
your range
your movement
you have outgrown
the old armour
and it is time
to shed your
hide and steel
back to yourself
and your vulnerability
which is your strength
if you are only brave enough
you are
stronger now
strong enough
to put down your defences
because you are
yourself
your stamina, your chosen skills
and charisma
are all you need
