Natural State of Mind

Turning the dream into reality
understanding that natural is a state of mind
knowing who I am mentally
Emotionially aware that
it is more than just the way I style my hair
knowing that when they inform me that I need a relaxer
Slavery ended years ago
I am no longer controlled by the master
Why sit at the back of the bus
I am the driver of my dreams
singing "We shall overcome"
ignorance, hatred, stupidity and other harmful and evil things
no longer using old raggedy textbooks handed down by others
Add author to my list along with wife, sister, friend, and mother
Colored fountain, no ma'am
accepted Christ and he removed the dam
now I drink "that" water...I'll never thirst again
loving my beautiful cottony kinky hair and my velvety sun-kissed skin
Separate but equal
You really believed that LYE
One man had a dream
his life he sacrificed
his dream
my reality
to live life to the fullest

HOTD: Twisted Bantu Knot Out

Da ich mein 'Fro seeehr vermisst habe, sind die Yarn Twist  jetzt weg!
Nach dem Haare waschen habe ich meine Haare getwistet und aus dem Twists dann Bantu knots gemacht.
Das ganze wie gewöhnlich mit der Muadika Shea Haarcreme.
Der einzige Nachteil bei mir ist dass meine Haare selbst über Nacht nicht trocken werden, und danach ist die Definition der Locken ziemlich schlecht.
Ich habe mich einfach vor meinem Ventilator gestellt für 10-15 min. :).
Wenn ihr ein Föhn habt wo ihr einstellen könnt wie warm oder wie kalt es sein sollte, umso besser!!

p.s: Hab den Haartyp 4 C .

Definition nach dem Öffnen

Fluff it up!

Natural Hair Poetry

Every strand is a rhyme

moving to its own rhythm
bending, twirling, halting time

Some say that it's just hair

what's the big deal?


giving you something you can feel

twirl it around your fingers

capture the image in your mind

tendrils and curls 

overstepping boundaries

and erasing straight lines

curved by the Creator

shaped by his hands

Natural Hair Poetry
