    I got tired of clipping split ends,

    Keeping up with the latest trends,

    Trying to impress men and my friends…

    Not to mention the money I had to spend;

    No more relaxers, perms, wigs, and weaves

    Down my back,

    I have embraced the Lord’s creation

    Of me being black…

    Black by nature

    And nothing can change that;



    Made from the seed

    And salt of the Earth,

    My life’s destiny and agenda

    Was already designated before my birth;

    God has plans for all of His people

    And He created us from the conception of His mind,

    Forever connected by nature

    And never severing the ties that bind;



    Educating and elevating myself

    And fulfilling my possibilities,

    Giving up my life to God for His purpose

    And to use me to the best of my abilities;

    I’m going back, back, back to my roots…

    Planting my spiritual seed, for spiritual growth,

    And to produce spiritual fruits;



    The media have so many people programmed

    To what the world is supposed to be,

    They are taking away from God’s essential quality

    And originality;

    I have to remove self to receive the blessings

    That God has for me…

    Manifesting and enhancing my spiritual bouquet

    For the entire world to see.
