You see me often ladies,
For I am a part of your life.
I sometimes bother babies
But prefer to cause adults strife.
My looks are a sign of your personality.
My strength cannot measure up to yours.
With most people I am there for eternity.
Onto me, water often pours.
Many look to me with pride,
While others wish to change me.
Drifting slowly, my time I bide
Waiting for you to see
That I am just a thing you're given,
Not something very important.
For I have always been and will forever be dead.



Answer

Hair.

It often gets in your face (at least it does to girls).
Some babies are born with it, some are not.
You wash your hair often, and get it changed just as much.
This may sound a little too scientific, but hair is made of dead cells, just like your upper layer of skin.

Apr 04, 2005

yeah that was cute, took a few secs.These can be hard to get 'cause they're hard to write.Try it, be funny,accurate, rhyme in some fashion,and try not to offend too many. BY THE WAY, "I got it,good for me is not a comment it is a poorly veiled attempt at bragging,over a teaser, get over yourself

What does the 'ladies' part have to do with it? Men don't normally have hair?

I thought of two answers... hair and reflection

Sep 17, 2013

I got it. Buy I disagree w/ importance. A woman's hair is very important to her.

Sep 17, 2013

I was with the 'fingernails' people-but I liked it when I saw hair: same-ish
isolde-c
Sep 17, 2013

I also found this quite sexist and poorly written. A good riddle should have all necessary clues and only one answer. Keep trying!
