My Hair is Me 

My hair is unique

My hair is me 

It is an expression of everything within me 

I know it is beautiful 

That’s why I handle it with care

I treat myself well 

Even when I get stares 

Why do we question 

Brown and black existence 

Everything from culture 

To unexplained vengeances 

We must embrace our natural being 

A way of empowering 

A sign of resilience 

I am 

Just for me 

I wear my crown happily 

Not to please men 

And not styled for the acceptance of others

My hair 

With its curls, waves and coils 

Is beautifully made 

I was created 

And so I will be
