Bald And Beautiful

by AqueenPassing

My confidence lies no more 
with the length of my hair
nor does it determine the 
outcome of my baldness from
lack of hair and the ignorance 
of people who stop and stare

I have re-channeled my energy
toward a brighter day 
I have dwelled in the pain long enough
and from the tears came
Strength that has been sipped
from a tall withered cup

My loss will some how be
someone’s gain even if nothing else 
but to know that someone else has 
gone through and knows how they feel 
even shared in their pain

I lift my head with pride and 
a confidence I never had for it is now that
I see the true beauty the exuberates through me

The loss of my hair was never meant 
to be the end but just a new beginning
for I am bald and beautiful and the true
beauty still lies within.
