Why I perm it, straighten it, press it.
Wig it, glue it, sew it.
Why I “Aunt Jemima” scarf it or Angie Davis fro it.
Why I sister lock, finger wave, high bun or box braid it.
Why I Halle Berry, Rihanna, Tyra or Beyonce it.
Why I run from water in the summer to protect it.
Why I spend countless hours in the mirror to perfect it.
Why it’s fried, dyed and laid to the side.
Why I rock these styles with so much pride.
“Why? ” you ask
I reply, “Because I can.”
I’m a black girl, you just wouldn’t understand…
