The Curly Love Affair

I can't imagine spending a lifetime
Never understanding you,
Hiding you away in my ignorance
Unable to follow your twists and turns
And ignoring all that you are
Until I had forgotten you.

You may not make me,
But you are a apart of me--
An extension of who I am
And a reflection of my acceptance
Of the beauty I was born in--
If I spent a lifetime never seeing you,
I'd be blind to myself.

Your unmanageability and shifting moods
Tangled strands of split personalities
Annoying me without restraint
And I wrestle to gain control
Of this rocky relationship,
Out of breath, out of ideas
But if I spent a lifetime without you
I'd be magnitudes less than I am...

I've learned to enjoy your resistive charm
Relish in your wild unpredictability
And cherish all that you are
When everything is said and done,
At least I get to love you.

  1. Never knew a relationship with hair could be described so vividly. Cheers to you, as usual!



Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
