What Is That On Your Head?

It’s…my hair.

It’s a statement.

It’s…a body in itself.

It’s my crown.

A symbol of my blackness.

An embodiment of grace.

It’s my trademark.

I wear wherever I go.

And even though I may not always have “good hair days”,

It’s always a good day.

It’s…my covering.

My shield.

It’s there as if to say, “I’m standing tall, and so should you”.

It is my shade in shining armor.

My ore.

A symbol of my dignity and strength,

Because it’s not just hair, it’s culture.

Nessa 💜
