It's Just Hair.

March 17, 2011
My hair is curly.
And I want it straight.
I envy those girls,
They're never late
But I am, a lot.
Because I have a routine.
I wish I had that reassurance.
That my hair would always be perfect.
All I'd have to do,
Is take a shower,
and brush it.
But its not that easy, for me.
I have to use all kinds of products,
To tame these wild curls of mine.
Some say they like it,
And even wish they had it.
But really,
If they did they'd soon realize.
Straight is where its at.
You can put it up,
And look like a sports person.
And how it looks messy so perfectly.
Or you can get layers,
And look like a preppy girl.
Even a shaggy cut looks good.
Pulling off a punk.
But curly hair is limited.
One way looks fine,
The other not so much.
Then again, its just hair.
Why should I care?

Those are the exact lines of my sister. Who has curly hair. Mine ain't really straight either...kind of a midway thing.. And yes, I agree, I think every single girl can relate to this. Me included. I get really confused by my own reactions really, sometimes I want to cut it, sometimes I want it long. Sometimes I want to style it. But whatever happens, one thing I always say is "I love my hair" <3 Awesome sentence really. :D

I agree! Sometimes I'm glad I have the hair I do, for styling and stuff. Many people with straight hair complain that it never holds a curl haha. Well I definately won't have that problem anytime soon. Anywho, thanks for your feedback!

Its honest and the tone is clear. The flow is nice and the train of thought is easy to follow. Its also easy to relate to because lots of girls worry about their hair. Thanks for checking out my work.

Wow, this is truly different! I enjoyed it immensely, I understand where you're coming from completely... My hair is naturally curly as well, but I can straighten it, but it takes like three hours xD I like this a lot(: well done! 5/5
