Wanna Recharge My Hair & My Life...


My hair used to be my crowning glory,
Then came a twist in my hair's story...
Earlier my Mom used to oil, comb & plait it for me,
My hair used to be long, strong, thick & shiny.

It also got great food with the right nutrition,
Thanks to my Mom's great care & attention.
 
For my higher studies, when I went to Delhi,
My hair missed the gentle love of my Mummy...

Got Delhi's heat & cold- extreme weather conditions,
Also was forced to encounter the awful pollution...

Not to mention the stress of my MBA education-
Late-night studying, lack of sleep & improper nutrition…


After my studies & my homecoming, I was soon married,
I had to move to Hubby’s home & was the Mom of a kid…

I was also a working-woman, who was super-busy,
I had many roles to play & no ME-time for poor me…

Had I more time for myself, my hair would gain attention,
But neglected so, my hair no longer makes an impression…

It is frizzy, lifeless, lacks luster & is unmanageable,
My once crowning-glory is now in a state so awful…


To adorn my hair, if I pick flowers, there are no smiles…
Recharged hair is wanted as it brings smiles across miles…


My Hairbrush is forever crying, seeing loss of my hair,
My flying & falling hair give my home’s floors a scare…

But my hair finds its way even to my kitchen- that’s worse,
Recharging my hair will recharge my life & stop this curse.


Though people say I am cool & an excellent cook,
Terrible as they find my hair in dishes/food when they look!

The other day, when my mother-in-law fished out a strand,
I decided– I’ll recharge my hair & no more be embarrassed!

I’ll recharge my life too so that all will love me a bit more!
Perhaps my recharged hair will put me on a magazine cover!

Me On Extreme Left!


I need to recharge my hair to let my hair down!
To let my curls rock & roll, dance in joy & not frown! 


Recharging my hair will banish all my bad hair days,
I’ll be ready to party & style my hair in many ways!




Recharging my Hair will mean Recharging my Life…
I wanna celebrate life’s party everyday & feel alive!

  7. This form of expression (pictures + poem) will make anyone read till end. Appreciate how easily you have weaved the message into a poem, one of the most challenging forms of expression in my opinion. Describing childhood, studentship and adulthood and a hint of your real life experince made the story look real.

    1. Indrani, Glad I didn't do that coz there are a number of Posts with Bollywood Song references!
      But, am sure no one has written a Post with hair fall everywhere, even on the food/plate that gives everyone a scare! :P
      Real problem that needs hair recharge! :)
      I have written another post, but that is again a personal account! :)
      Thanks for your wishes!
      Will have more Bollywood in subsequent Posts :)

    1. Hee hee, Seeta :) I thought I had to mention this problem as it's fairly common when I cook!
      Valid reason why my hair needs a recharge! :)
      As for Filmy Stuff, it's conspicuous by its absence in this Post... (Good thing as many have dealt with hair-movie-songs! I'd have ended up repeating them!)
      Sometimes, it's best to be unpredictable & create shock effect. With the topic being 'recharge', shocks possible! :)
