Hip Hop Hair

I wear my hair

Without a care

To declare

My female power

Cuz I don’t cower

To the everyday forces that try to overpower

When a woman’s empowered

And no I ain’t tryin’ to be vain

But if that’s all you see in these photos of my mane

Think again and make your eyes strain

And what you’ll see is how I sustain

Through times of pain

How I show the strength of my brain

To those of you who might make assumptions

About me without face-to-face discussions

So if you see me and my hair treadin’ somewhere

In some fresh footwear

Go ahead and stare

But beware…

Don’t get blinded by the profound glare
