Gray Is In To Stay, Maybe ..... [aging; Gray/Grey Hair; Very Short; Thanks To R.A. Poteet For Inspiriing Me]

Rating: 1.0

Do not struggle, R.A.Poteet.
With gray... you can't compete.
Curl it, comb it, tease it too,
but fighting gray.... will not do!

Be happy or at least content
that all your hair to hell ain't went.
Yes, the gray is here for now to stay,
but baldness may strike you any day!

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
this poem was inspired (or i was inspired to write it) by reading PH member 'Reason A. Poteet''s poem 'Between Me and My Mirror'. i think that is the correct title. it is a great poem about change on one's aging head.

she also has entered, for the first time, Brian Johnston's PH Challenge poem-writing contest, with a silly? poem about words.

my poem is part of my comment left on her 'mirror' poem's page.

Having grey hair is much better than going bald. You can always try color supplements not radical hair dye. A good poem.

but baldness may strike you any day! Alopecia is no more related to age, it strikes anyone irrespective of gender, culture, continent and other variables. I can definitely say it does not relate to sexual orientation, but then why so many young and aspiring people have lost their crown. Does it relate to any medication or vaccination people had got when they were young. and this issue is not at all a joke, considering and imagining that half of the population of the world in the next centuries affected with this issue..
