This poem is about blacks loving and accepting their African American hair.

Nappy Hair

Nappy Hair
Coily, kinky, thick or coarse
often styled with no remorse.
Interesting to the eyes is said,
To the filaments that grace my head.
Confident is she that displays such
beauty
braided, corn-rowed, twisted, or plats,
embraced instead of ironed flat.
Curiosity of the masses has captured their attention
Maybe frowned upon when mentioned.
However, it’s wonderful, invigorating, free
natural, my identity.
Accessorized, fashionable, adorned
worn the way you were born.
Take it in.
Accept it.
It’s true.
That style looks amazing on you.
As you walk down the street--head held
high
Pride shown to every passerby.
Many people may stop and stare
To get a glimpse of my nappy hair.
Although often misunderstood,

don’t worry because I’m feeling good.
Locked, fro, or buzz cut…none can compare
of my fantastically owned
nappy hair.

I adore this poem. Great word choice and rhythm. I also believe natural hair is a beautiful gift of nature to be taken care of and embraced.
