Hair or Life

Sometimes cut short, far too short,

By choice, or not.

Sometimes lost, before its time,

Full, thick or thin, sleek, long and strong, full of vitality,

Lively, vibrant, the talk of the town,

Chemically modified, energised and enhanced,

Dull, drab, uninspired and uninspiring,

Split and weak, fading, greying, easily broken and lifeless,

Slicked and greased,

Lanky and unloved,

Over-worked, over-groomed and trying too hard,

Swaying and effortlessly bouncing au naturel,

Simply wanting to be touched,

Blowing in the wind,

Going with the flow, or not.

It’s yours to do with it what you want.

Hair or Life
