Stop Splitting Hairs

Splitting hairs won’t do this time:
forget your method, or tradition,
stop worrying about it,
or fretting over nothing,
no need to be punctilious,
keep your fussiness at bay…

A little trim will just do:
pinch a bit here, shorten there,
make space for some fresh new growth,
and keep it light, always smile,
cultivate your real interests,
make your life more colourful…

You know life can’t be perfect:
keep the best, and make it work.
