My Hair…

 

My hair
Is happily
Nappy
Coiled crinkly
Goodness
Unconventional
Intensity

My hair
Is phenomenal
A representation
Of my eloquent
Melaninated
Thick thighed
Heavy lipped
Self

My hair is
A reflection
Of stars caught in
A blanket
Of night
My heritage
Quilt of colorful
Strength

My hair
Is the roots
That are dug
In me

My crown
That I
Carry
Loud and

Proud.
