I shaved my beard... change occurs gradually. Chopping off a beard doesn’t take that long though. Ja boy was feeling a change. It’s #fiveoclockshadow somewhere. I feel like a young man again before the responsibility of having a beard weighed down upon me with the magnitude of a thousand moons. #beardedlady and #beardedmen alike, having a #beard is not easy. Yet, it’s not hard at all. You just have to let nature run its course. Allow your body’s processes to operate as the gods intended. It is a beautiful thing. However, I realized that anyone could just up and grow a beard.. and I began to notice that the attitude surrounding beards had changed. Any ole Jimmy, Donny, or Harley could grow a beard. The luster lessened. The sheen shrank. The allure eluded me. I was left with two options: chopping off my Johnson or shaving my beard. I went with the latter.
