"I can tell by the way you're laughing, you're trouble looking for a place to happen."
- Chris Young

Sometimes she curled her hair
Sometimes she dyed in blue
But it always told a story,
Though no one ever knew.

She loved her hair long,
Until a mishap in fifth grade
After, she cut it shorter
Wouldn’t want it any other way.

Her locks were her frame
Of beauty and misperception
She loved her hair,
But not always her reflection.

She pinned it up
She pushed her luck
And hoped she looked alright.

He pushed her hair back,
He smiled at her features.
He thought she was beautiful,
And admired her from the bleachers.

Her hair was unique,
Not superficial,
But labeled a geek.
So she smiled and replied with
“I bomb at Black Ops 3.”

The author's comments:

I've always expressed myself through the way I look. Band tees, black shoes, and long hair. When I was in fifth grade, I cut my own hair too short, but I loved it! It was different, it was new, but I felt more like myself. Ever since then, I've been cutting my hair short. I wouldn't want long hair ever again.
