Yesterday’s Haircut

So yesterday I cut my hair.
And I feel a sense of despair.
I always get emotional when this happens.
So about my feelings now, I'm going to be yapping.

Little over a year ago, my hair was up to mid thigh. 
And then I chopped it for a family wedding that went by.
Just to style it a bit.
And avoid the splits.

Then  again nine months ago.
I did it once more.
Felt like I was getting rid of.
A baby that had grown soft.

Eleven inches is what I cut back then.
But it was necessary as I had developed some split ends.
So I justified it that way.
Hoped it grew fast, I prayed.

And now again yesterday, once more.
I undertook it as a chore.
As I sat in that dreadful salon chair.
I dished out two poems from there

Wrote and published the previous two yesterday.
As the scissors were moving along my way.
So I wouldn't get choked up.
With my tresses, about our breakup.

This time I got some layers.
So even shorter, it appears.
Now I can just hope and pray.
It will grow faster some way.

It's definitely a lot more manageable.
And that's a good thing if I look at that angle.
But I'm still quite sad.
One third loss is quite a tad.

  2. So sorry about your hair loss my cyber twin. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ ❀

    Yes, hair
    I understand the despair.
    I always care too much for my hair.
    But it doesn’t usually play to fair.
    Sometimes it’s flat.
    Sometimes it’s frizzy.
    My terrible bad hair just keeps making me dizzy.

    Can you do anything with it? πŸ˜‚ Hehe.

    Thanks for making me smile with your poem sweet sister. πŸ’—πŸ’“πŸ’ž

    1. I know right….why doesn’t it ever behave!?!
      Mine’s always flat…
      And I only know 2 hairstyles….
      Open and left….
      Messy bun to get the housework done!
      If it made you smile my dear sister, I’m so so so glad Tina.
      Love and lots of love always….

    1. Thanks Eileen. Wow, I can imagine how much time she must have spent attempting to grow and care for it. I can only imagine how heartbreaking it is for a parent, especially a mother. I pray God grants you and your family, especially Victoria extra grace to be His witnesses of love.πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜

      1. Thank you Ruelha, at one time Victoria’s hair was very thick like her dads (since he is from Trindad) and her skin was darker as well however, since she is not in the sun because of her health it is lighter now.

  3. her long tresses looked right–
    Just below her rump in sight—
    Long hairs’ brushing
    one cannot be rushing
    but eased maintenance brings delight!!!—JonDaddy <3<3 ❀ ❀
