Silver Strands

I decided to take the high road...let nature have a say
I’ll let my hair go natural...I will embrace the grey

So I stripped the color...saw it wash right down the drain
Studied myself in the mirror...luckily, I still looked sane

I put on a fitted skirt, and headed out the door
I even grabbed my fishnets...Yeah, listen to me roar!

I pushed my cart around, and winked at all the guys
Sure they acted real sly, but they were getting a rise

I smiled at the pretty cashier...she told me the amount
I asked why so low, she said, “That’s with your senior discount”

I guess I’ll have to keep it natural…till who knows when
‘Cuz I doubt they have Clairol…in the pen!

    I would gladly let all of my hair go gray, but long ago my hair disappeared and went its own way. I am challenged follicly. Charming little write Ms Natalie.

    why do i like this poem? because it reaches the inner part of me. the part that wants to reach out to the elderly lady wearing fishnets and tell her ... well lets keep it clean for the kiddies.

    Yeah, I happily don't have grey yet! Maybe a couple every few months or so but you can't see 'em. My dad is 100% grey (and has been since 45) and my beautiful mom (60) has none! I hope I will take after her :) But if not, I will make monthly appointments w/ my hairdresser :)

    So cool, I love the attitude, eventually we have to face it and it's not so bad after all. I think you look great, you must have about 10 grey hairs.
