Hair (who’s happy with it?)

A Poem by m.e. ziegler 

White girly natural
Braid, rag curl, perm
Straighten, color, com

Brush, shave, strip
Leaving all to wonder
Why can’t we leave it

Everywhere I go
People want to change
Natural to unnatural

Who told me
I’d look younger
Red, black, blonde
Anything but gray!

Singing “I want to be curly
I want to be straight “

Ain’t nobody happy
With the mane
That they hate

Rosie’s got wigs
New hair everyday
Be whatever color
Or style that you may

Pixie or bob
Afro or braid
She’s never tied in
To decisions she’s made!
