This explains my St. Baldrick's Day experience.  I guess it could apply to other stuff too, I don't know

On a day that was so sunny,
I looked around to get some money,
They asked "what for," I said "because,"
Who wouldn't want to join a cause.

I'm talking all my hair away,
To help sick kids to find a way.
These kids have none to call their own,
The hospital's their only home.

I shaved my head I did it then,
I got to feel just like them.
People staring in the hall,
Made me feel like I'm so small.

What else to say, but comes a day,
To keep those beastly thoughts away.
It seems the best way for us all,
To let it go with head held tall.

Please, please, please let me know what you think.

This just needs a bump.

It should be read, not for the rhyme but for the awareness of the topic.

Hold that bald head up tall and proud. You did something wonderful to help those less fortunate than yourself. On an Oprah show, I saw the delight of children who received wigs made from hair donors. You have done something to light up the life of a child in need.

You are walking your talk! God bless you! People like you are making a difference.

A very touching poem with a meaningful message.

Yo Crosscountry83,

This is a very good idea.  

I have always had a very high forehead, and people have called me "Baldy" since I was a kid.  Now my hair is white, so no one knows the difference.

Thanks for all the replies, I still have short hair, so people think I'm a guy sometimes... It doesn't really bother me though
