Mirror Talk

I look in the mirror at the slowly invading growth of black hair beneath the bleach blonde dye. I am thinking of chopping it all off and leaving the color natural. With every new haircut, I am starting to see the reality of myself more clearly.

me:

I don’t know whether I am ready to see myself like this just yet.

you:

I promise you will be so beautiful, you don’t even know.

me:

What will people say? How will they react?

you:

Those who fear you may look away;

Those like you will silently support you.

And those who love and celebrate you

will welcome you with open arms.

me:

I’m scared…

and exhilarated.

you:

Good.

I would expect nothing less

when faced with the formidable

fact of who you are.
