ending this cycle of taking outer self transformative actions whenever I feel dried up
constantly changing my hair to meet my new mood
new mood, new moon
re shaped, color shift, reflecting a new image of myself
don’t you know you’re not your hair girl?
singing India Arie like i’m comprehending her lyrics of wisdom
solange called me out last year
put me on blast, never knew someone of a different body, different life resonated so much with myself
i’m not defined by the style or neatness of my hair
long, smooth hair doesn’t hold the confidence that comes from within
i tried to change it with my hair until i learned i am not my hair
< thank you india arie & solange – a black girl listener >
stay tuned, peace.
