    some say
    it's a sign of wisdom
    or maybe stress
    not to neglect the inheritance factor...

    ...so l looked in the mirror for the daily hook-up routine
    looking so fresh so clean
    until l saw a gray slick monster l have never seen
    gray piece of hair!
    it gots to go
    it can't still the show
    under the sun it just might glow and glisten

    l grabbed my scissors to get to cutting
    but it grew back 3 days later
    l cut it again
    but maann it grew back greater
    this gray piece of hair is a hater and what could my barber do??

    could this be my symbolic passover to maturity
    reminder of things passed
    no more old things
    like hanging out
    and getting *** and each time l want to "go back"
    it is there to remind me of my new level
    that l've come to love and respect and by which l am grounded..

    looking in the mirror for the daily hook-up routine
    looking so fresh and so clean but now l cut around it :wink:

    J'hiah, this was great, it made me smile(and giggle)
    and made me think.

    Hmmm, Your new level......awe inspired by the infamous "gray hair"
    If it's any consolation......we all will get there.

    Enjoyable read!
