    I’m not really talking about the kinky form,
    With rough plaits that last so long.
    But I’m talking about my permed tress.
    Which was once the source of my happiness.
    It is described as my glory,
    Located on my head.
    And it’s also called my beauty,
    Or so I’ve read.
    It once was full,
    Full of life, full of bounce,
    Health and shine,
    Flowed throughout every ounce.
    It had everything,
    Very little did it lack.
    It was real, it was long,
    And its color was jet black.
    It was also mentioned,
    In my description to unknowns.
    And there was always a compliment from others,
    About how much it had grown.
    But now…I look in the mirror,
    And I could hardly gaze,
    The framing of my face,
    Gone.
    My finesse and my grace,
    Gone.
    Absent is my mane,
    Tears well up in my eyes,
    Because it brings me so much pain.
    And I realized with resentment,
    The fact that my shortness was a concern,
    That longer was better,
    Or so you’ve ‘helped’ me learn,
    And you’ve also caused me to yearn,
    For what she has, or what I had in the past.
    But I’m just hoping that the cause of this off-season,
    The key of it or its reason,
    Isn’t because I suffered a lost,
    The lost of my locks…

    Well I just recently lost a great deal of my hair.....
    which i thought i took such good care of.
    And it's really hard for me to look in the mirror right now
    And i feel like i've lost a part of me....literally
