I did not cry,

not there

but later when going through the pictures of hair falling off

It's just hair you can say, but no It's so much more

It's love

It's a statement

It's hope

It's pain

It's a side effect

It's a mother’s heart


words are too small


I have seen my sons hair fall off, seen the chemotherapy side effects, all of them

 it is hair, but it is a big deal

it is part of our identity, a part we cut and style and color and pay for to feel prettier

without hair we look different, naked, people notice


I know God was there, counting, every single hair that fell, every tear, and he is there when new grows back, there in every moment

changing outcomes, creating the future,
