These Strands

These Strands

Massaging these strands

Confidence I found

Whether I was super kinky or straight as a stick pin

Negativity from other people always tried to ease it’s way in

It was when I became a little older, I discovered my true friends

Content with these strands

Patience helped me grow

I learned to be quiet no matter how much I know

Positivity from my own heart

I made the choice to be happy

Proud owner of peace

Washed the impurities out  

Conditioned my soul

Moisturized every inch of my body

Glowing from east to west

Loving these strands now I can rest.
