Your Long, Natural Black Hair

Her hair is long and silky
"No more wigs" I tell her
"You're pretty"
"Your hair's healthy and more beautiful than that wig or hair weave could ever be"

I like who you are
Unadulterated, pure, and uncovered
Wigs and hair pieces are an insult to your natural beauty
The natural beauty that God's blessed you with

So the next time you look in the mirror
And you're in doubt because of a bad hair day
Envision me whispering in your ear this Lil Wayne rap line
"I don't think you're beautiful, I think you're beyond it."
