My Wild Short Hair

I’ll cut my wild hair short

Get tattoos to cover sores

Pack away your gifts

In preparation to move on

I’ll sell my clothes

In charity shop windows

Buy tons more

For a fresh start in this course

I’ll keep busy at work

And with outside chores

In hope I’ll forget

So I can restart

I’ve grieved over the loss

Trying to rebuild my worn trust

I forgive your careless words

And how your reckless actions touched

I’ll admit I’m scared

Being almost all alone

With no adult figure close

But don’t worry I’ll get by

As we both know

I’ll never forget you

I still wish you all the best

In this world of strange events

Maybe one day I’ll see you again

When my wild short hair turns grey
