The Story of My Hair

Born with curly hair
Answer to mom's prayer
Who always kept it oiled
So it isn't spoiled

I was...her girl with the curls

The touch of her fingers
rubbing though each hair strand
She adorned my hair with ribbons
colorful clips or a hair band

I was...her girl with the curls

After I left school
I was expected to be cool
My short and trendy hair styles
Always got me smiles

I still was...her girl with the curls

My hair got playful and flirty
When I reached my thirty
My hair tied in a perfect bun, I was a pretty bride
She looked at me and her eyes filled with pride

Life became busy when I became a wife
Then two lovely kids came into my life
I still cared for my tresses
By staying away from stresses

I am a woman of my own
With years I have grown
While my hair has begun to turn grey
To my mother, I want to say

I was and I still am...her girl with the curls


  1. And boys with curls? As I child often I wished I had curly hair and not straight (like the wig worn by Shahrukh khan in dildaara song) :)

  8. Poetry requires more intense research and phrasing. it's easy to pen down what comes to mind in a flow, but poetry is something tad tough and different.choosing the perfect rhyming word, is quite a task.
    kudos to your effort.
    hearty sincere wishes.

  9. Farila - Thanks a lot. To be frank, I like curly hair more, the reason, the soft and silky straight hair look attractive but it is the curls which add to the personality
