I’m Not My Hair

 

Blond, brunette, red head, maybe dark brown

Hair’s just a noun

 

I’d cut it down

It’s much work to where the crown 

 

Perhaps colored, textured, spiked, or layered

Samson I’m not, I’ve never cared

 

Those closest are very much the crutch

Want to be better now?

Don’t wait for later, be a creator 

Look into the mirror, and wake up some how

 

So when there is no more there there, and you realize it’s just hair, au contraire, I’m not my hair
