Alopecia Areata

I hardly know how to pronounce it
much less how to deal with it,
a bald patch on the side of my head,
smooth as a baby's behind.
that's not how it's supposed to be.
my goal was to have a full head of hair
until the end, not a goofy looking head
like my mother, with her bald patches,
her hair a mix of black and white.
I am like my mother in so many good ways,
I would have just preferred to not have
this one.
