I sincerely apologies for my silence… Been focusing on a lot of things besides my hair lately.
A friend of mine saw this blog and was inspired to write a poem I thought I’d share.
Just so you know, the following was actually written by a GUY!!!!…. he’s straight mind you 😉
Finger to my lips,
Sunk in thoughts of a thousand worries,
on my mind.
She’s conquered with no cease,
taking prisoners for no ransom fee.
Taunting and hunting our feminine’s
ripping their pride with no pleas
tearing them root for root.
Gloating over their loss
and hoping they would fall prey to her own demise.
Yes, her demise, for she knows not yet this
for the battle has been taken to
her very own doorsteps.
Scalping, the tool for retaliation set!!
Exposure to the natural burn of the earth’s guardian,
not knowing she held her self captive and graciously led herself
into the dungeon for her own denial.
Her inmates or so she thought
liberated to the world
with a difference,
set free to speak their minds
attaining boldness unheard of.
Gallant in their march
bearing a message to disperse
with the roar of a thousand notes
for they are not alone
Free your mind! They shout,
free your scalp! They beckon,
for wherein lies your beauty?
if you are not your hair.
Walk the talk
and dishonor Alopecia
for she would never be a part of you.
