My Hair Is Not Public Property

Don’t touch my hair

I know its kinky, exotic, celestial

out of this world, against the norm

But my hair is not for public consumption

hidden underneath centuries of oppression

nor shall it be labeled unkempt

It holds my magic

the knowledge and traditions of a people surely YOU ARE unfamiliar with

my hair is mine, and mine alone

It’s not something to be gawked or prodded at,

nor is it meant to be relaxed for your comfortability

my hair is mine, and mine alone
