NovemBEARD 2010

It’s the last day of November and this NovemBEARD has come to an end. This year’s facial hair growth has shown greater success than last year which is quite impressive, at least for my standards. During this month I’ve been complimented on my facial hair and even told that I look better with a beard than without…which I find completely odd.

So now that I’m at the end of the month, its time to shave it off and return to my norm. But before I do, I’m going to think about the future when shaving will be no more. To those future days I offer up the following poem.

To My Beard

What can I say but I am sorry,
I apologize for what I do to you,
my daily ruthlessness and cruelty.
What can I do but ask for your forgiveness
and your patience. For someday,
I promise you, someday I swear
on the beards of the prophets
and on the beard of the poet Whitman and
on the beard of the president Lincoln,
I will not stop you any longer,
I will let you go free, I will take down
the fence around you made of sharp blades.
For someday, I promise you, I will let
you run wild through the valleys
of my face like a stallion, I will let you
wander over the desert of my face
like a holy man in his vision of heaven
and hell, I will let you grow, blossom
and flourish, and I will stroke you
and comb you and keep you orderly
and free of knots and tangles,
and you in turn will make me look
distinguished, a wise old man as I stroke
you looking serious, looking as though
I were thinking deep thoughts about
life and death. But I will be thinking
only about you, my beard, my second face,
and this will be our secret.

Take a look at my 30 day NovemBEARD 2010 journey.

Tré Sweeney…..

Welcome to the written documentation of a crazy man. He seems normal to most....but he is slowly un-winding at the seems and will one day explode.

Don't feed the crazies!
