Swell Time

Moving forward, just not sure where we're going, but at least we're having a swell time when we do it.

It changed everything

When my hair was red and I spoke,

People listened.

But the words they heard

Were tainted, because my words did not fit.

They did not fit how I looked.

They did not fit what people expected from me.

Change my hair,

Cut it short

Let it go gray,

Now I can say the same words.

And this time they are okay.

This time I am allowed to say them.

This time my words fit people’s expectations.

My heart,

My mind,

And my soul

Remained constant.

But change my hair, and somehow

That changed everything.
