Your skin

It's your own

Learn to love it

Treasure it

Your skin

It protects you

Keeps you safe

Cherish it


Thanks for reading!

    I absolutely love this, Paul. Thank you for writing this!

  • I love other people's skin too. It protects them. Until it doesn't. Because I would have skinned them alive 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    I dunno Paul. I’m not sure I can trust you anymore lol… I read this as a threat, like cherish your skin, might not have it for much longer. 🙀 Sorry I’m just being a turd.. watched Silence of the lambs again a few weeks back! Sorry!!!!!
