This poem was inspired by my students. As a middle school teacher, I have seen several students struggle with their identity.
“You have good hair.” These are the words that I always dreamed to hear when I was a child and a teenager.
The correct way of seeing ourselves is admiring God and His gradual work on us, while understanding who we are in His eyes.
My entire perspective of beauty needed to be gutted and revamped. It was either that or sink deeper in the trenches of low self-esteem.
You are a woman that refuse to give the world what it deserves – evil for evil. The world needs women like you that fight to be kind and considerate, despite the pain!
We all have an aroma that comes from our hearts. The aroma is similar to an aura or atmosphere that other people can feel and sense spiritually.
As I’m writing this, I saw a beautiful woman with straight hair. It made me wonder, would I be just as beautiful if I straightened my kinky curly locks?
