To you in 16 years

16 good years

It’s probably a pain I will never get over 

The wounds I am now attending to

I didn’t even know they were there

Every time I came back from the barbershop, the only thing I’d long for is for my hair to grow back.

I never wanted to look like a boy

I never wanted to cut my hair

I’ve read so many articles, they said what I need is patience

Can I wait sixteen years more?

Why did I have to suffer this 

For what reason?

It’s the only thing I think about that instantly brings tears to my eyes

Why us

Why me?

To my unborn children, do not worry, if it so happens that you will enter this insane reality through me as a portal, I will not administer this wickedness to you

This cruelty, this heartache

You will have choice, you will decide what to do with it

You will get to live with your hair and every other part of you

You won’t have to wait till you are older to live with a part of you that is so natural

But can I wait sixteen more?

To my hair, I love you so much, I promise to take care of you, so please promise me that you grow down to my knees by the time I am older

I know men will never understand what hair means to a girl, so I will stop expecting them to.

I love you

I promise to take care of you

I promise to love you

To my hair in sixteen years.

To you in 16 years

Featured quotable quote...

The greatest tragedy in life is that majority of people have accepted to be less than they were born to be and are thus accomplishing far less than their true capabilities

Great!

So in the diagram, how many squares did you make out in total; how many squares are there?

Well, most people get or give 16 as their answer. Some get 17 and a few get 21; and that’s at least better than the ‘16’ answer majority of people give. Just about 1 percent of people surveyed get the best answer; which is…

Well, get a full illustration of all the more than 21 possible ‘hidden’ squares…
