grey white black, don`t change mom

the perfect cut,?
grey , white black all that it is I think there needs to be a change. a better cut better fundamentals life is many a things change is one, hair style and color and age, here for me, another likened to world change, changes
 life death a newborn baby all the wonders i have seen and i witnessed flight watching a skydiver ,turning to the left and a man plays with a whale, killer at that. grieving a life lost, thus far the hardest soul break I hope to ever have to endure, please lord . seems my hair is so minute in this picture, but is it? all who see me judge me by something in my appearance its a big deal the length condition the actual cut how it lays or responds and my beautiful natural color, is in question? why? by my own self!? why! unnatural conditioning is why, change is needed and now. just a rinse please.
