Hair to Stay

This is a poem written by my dear friend, Sean for his writing class assignment.

Hair to stay

Trust me

My hair is an expression of who I want to be

Someone who embraces change, who wants to experience all that life has to offer and who is not afraid of people’s perceptions of them

Spiked, gelled, shaved or braided

It’s mines to do with as I please

My hair is a statement

A statement that screams I will do whatever the hell I want

Conform, I will not

Do things to please others, I won’t

I have done that for too long

Some people say my hairstyle doesn’t suit me

But I don’t care

Others will not influence the way I live my life

I am too busy trying to live my life than worry about other people’s opinions of me my hair and everything else

Those are their opinions which they are entitled to

But don’t bother me with them

With all the gel in my hair, this hairstyle is here to stay

Deal with it

I know my hair and hairstyle is beautiful because it is part of a beautiful person with a beautiful heart and beautiful soul
