The ever growing extension of me
coiling wild, healthy, and free
The way it was intended to be.
What you’re getting is what you see.
Beautifully, genuinely, intensely, naturally me.
I love me
enough not to wear parts from another’s anatomy
Satisfied with the color, texture, and length that God gave me.
Forgive me if I am not as pretty as I could be
because I don’t wear my hair like the majority of society and my community.
But I refuse to sit back and die slowly
altering my beauty because of what you may think of me.
