Eggshell Skull

Apply to the affected area
as needed, using caution
as repeated application
will cause thinning of the skin.

It’s a fine line between
thick-skinned and scabbing over;
scabbing leads to scarring,
and those scars are damn unsightly.

It’s hard to live with thin skin,
trying to avoid the stones,
the resultant bruising
and breaking down of things.

All you can do is hunker down,
guarding against what might hurt you.
