Ode to Alopecia

Alopecia you tried it!

You tried to take my identity, my beauty, and confidence.

You taught me a valuable lesson and for that I’m grateful.

My beauty, identity, and confidence isn’t in my hair.  It’s inside of me.

It’s my soul.  My soul is where my beauty, identity, and confidence is.

Alopecia you can’t ever touch that.

I am grateful that you showed up because I wouldn’t have known that anything was wrong with my body.

I get to define my beauty, my identity, and my confidence.

No one else or a disease can define that.

A.L.O.P.E.C.I.A.

Always been beautiful.

Love myself.

Only I can define my beauty, my identity, and my confidence.

Perfectly imperfect.

Empress.

Confidence is inside not on my head.

I can never lose my worth.

Alopecia can’t beat me.
