    Pretty vain of me to show
    How myself comes out w/out a flow
    Tightened up sometimes dry as can be
    As I look daily in my mirror to see
    Who I've become is my mother back Then
    But now why oh why is it a sin
    Not to kill those naps I can only believe in
    Like a man has those on his chin
    I'm gonna defend
    Waking up and giving water a scent
    Of what's in me
    I refuse to carry death on my head for a fee
    You see my black hair matters
    One strong thing I own that will not be shattered​

    i remember those times
    back in the day
    afro
    high-top fades
    wearing it the natural way
    cake-cutter in the back
    had to keep it tight
    everyday
    battling the winds
    trying to keep it right
