A Matter of Perspective

A Matter of Perspective

At nineteen, I had quite a fright
when auburn hair turned gray.
So L’Oréal became the friend
who washed the gray away.

Throughout the years, I’ve been a blonde,
brunette and redhead, too.
But keeping up became a chore,
one I grew loathe to do.

Today, I near the sixty mark,
and face a brand new plight.
I long for grays of yesterdays
since now my hair is white.
