Time Passing Through My Hair
How I feel about dyeing hair and watching sunsets
Last radiance, the setting sun sprays
My shining black hair, suddenly
So in middle age, unless I
Ponder and delay, delay and ponder
It is said that once hair is dyed, its quality changes and there are other side-effects as well. Therefore, for a long time I dared not risk dyeing my hair. Nonetheless most of my friends at my age had beautifully dyed black hair and I envied them very much. After considerable hesitation, I finally decided to have my hair dyed in exchange for temporary youth.
