“Baldly Go” (poem / poetry)

Yes, I’m bald, but I don’t need your pity,

There are so many positives, that leave me giddy,

Saving money on hair products, shampoo and combs,

It’s a breeze getting ready… I get dressed and go.

Choose one of two hairstyles, no lengthy decisions,

10+ years of haircuts, from one pair of clippers,

That works out at roughly 4 pence a week,

It’s so easy to maintain, and always on fleek.

Looking back, it really does make me laugh, when thinking about how many people throughout my life, have tried to feel sorry for me because I’m bald, or have tried to make fun of me because of it, some still try to this day.

It’s never really bothered me though, because I’ve never let it, instead I chose to look at all of the ways it has been a blessing to me, and continues to be, saving me so much bother, money and time each and every year.

But why stop there!? This experience helped me to begin seeing everything about my appearance (and myself in general), in a much more positive light. Yes, I strive to be the best version of myself that I can be, but even when things don’t go to plan, I love every single thing about myself, flaws and all.

I know there are many of you who are on the same page as me, in respect to your view of yourself, but I also know there are many that aren’t, those who never feel truly content, never feel like they are enough… my number one wish is that we all focus on the beauty that lies inside of us, and begin to see our reflections and the rest of World, with love-tinted glasses on.

Remember, my friends, no matter how our appearances change, we are who we choose to be, and we see what we choose to see.

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
