Free Will


Men cut their hair-
Men cut their hair to show hate and depair, a skinhead as clear as the
as a swastika there.
Men cut their hair to show Budha is there, a monk enlightened wanting to
share.
Men cut their hair just to feel the night air on hot summer day it is
better to wear.
These are the reasons men cut their hair.

Men grow hair long-
Men grow hair long when they are feeling a song, they find peace in their
heart with the hair they won't part.
Men grow hair long to braid with a feather, to bond with an eagle a tribe
is forever.
Men grow hair long too busy in life, till they are reminded to cut it by a
bothersome wife.
These are the reasons men grow their hair long.


Men are born with little hair at all, to cut it
or grow it, that is our call.

    to bond with an eagle

    braided into the hair, an image of courage,
    flight and possibilities within life's journey,
    the long flowing hair of disciplined freedom,
    hair in styles of perception that we wear (Report) Reply
