Red Hair

I have red in my hair
But I don’t want to draw it into self-portraits
Because I do not feel that redness
I am brown and grey and white
And I feel like a mountain of nothingness
That’s taking up too much space
But I cannot leave
Because I am grounded here
By some belief that all people should exist
So I am here
Though only barely
So I will not draw the red that sits in my hair
