    Sorry to put you through all that stress and strain
    I wanted to fit in with western ideals of beauty
    I couldn't see that it would truly come from within
    All these years of chemicals and creams
    Faithfully getting relaxers every 6 weeks
    Quick to run to the salon at the first kink
    I just couldn't see how wonderful u could be

    Its been over one year now just you and me
    If I would have known the pleasure of nappturality
    the feel of my fingers running through my natural curls
    the love of my life playing in my double strand twists
    or just the simplicity of my wash and go fro

    Never again will i listen to a well meaning hairdresser
    Telling me to relax or texturize for managability
    I'm managing just fine
    Managing to love the freedom and power being natural gives me
    Today I realized I'm napptrually beautiful!

    Such beauty in that realization, that we can love our hair, as it is. I definitely appreciate your expression sis.

    Loved reading this. It was fun to read and should make other women feel proud of this natural beauty because God gave it, and He makes no mistakes
