Ode to Oldies

February 6, 2009  |  Deep Thoughts, Random

Dear Gray Hairs,

Why oh why are you appearing again in my hair, and always on the left side of my head?

Why are you even visible to the world, do you want them to count that I have more than 3-4 strands?

I love the color gray and love how sophisticated you make me look but I totally loathe the feelings I get inside when I see you.

Others will sit and pluck you out or color you to make you disappear but I wear you like a badge of war.

Why do I think that 25 is the new old ancient age rather than a young ripe one?

Seriously why am I feeling this way? Take me out of this depressed, pitiful mood please.

Make me young again.

Yours Not-so-truly,

Jacqui
