‘This Time Last Year’ – A Poem!

This time last year
my hair resigned
the struggle to maintain
to hold on
to life

this time last year
my hair said no
it gave up the ghost
and with it
my hope

this time last year
i unburied myself
rediscovered my youth
and the secrets it held

this time last year
i stopped stopping myself
green light to go
to recapture my health

this time last year
i started again
gave it a chance
it grew
i knew
to free those curls
to show myself
i can
