    This is for all my sistas who revel in their beauty!

    Sistas in Headwraps
    A sight to behold
    Wrapped in majestic rainbows
    Of amethyst, emerald, and gold

    Sistas in Headwraps
    Getting brothas straight sprung
    Beauty so infinite
    You KNOW you want you one

    Sistas in Headwraps
    Doing their thang
    Serengeti reds and Moroccan blues
    Others wish they could hang

    Sistas in Headwraps
    Royal African Queens
    Strolling by envious eyes
    In urban scenes

    Sistas in Headwraps
    With the BADU - izm vibe
    “Girl what’s your tribe?”
    Our eternal beauty
    Inspired this scribe

    Let's Wrap

    Yes I'm a wrapped sista
    and I do it because i can
    beautiful bright colors
    that sets off my natural tan

    Upon my head wrapped bountiful
    proudly displayed as a crown
    adorned with cowery shell jewelry
    and kente cloth as my gown

    Wrapped in head to toe
    in a way we can only display
    they sit back and wonder
    how did they make it stay that way.

    ;)

    How many times.......

    Have you seen a sista in a headwrap and she looked beautiful? I just love being a Black woman and when I wrap my head I feel even more like a queen, hence this little verse. Glad yall were feeling a sista!

    blakverb, I'm originally from FLA but now residing in Grand Rapids, "land of the white people."

    mojo, black women are the shiznit, ain't we?! Glad you felt this one!

    Thandiwe, one thing I love about this board is how people start a flow and other people keep it going. You're my cybersister, for real!

    $$RICH$$ and Da Street Soja, I look forward to yall's responses every time! :heart: :heart: :heart:
