Don't touch my hair

Updated: Feb 26

Dead cells coming from my scalp my crown and Glory so much history so much weight carried in these dead cells dead cells growing from my fingers adding length beauty style Grace these dead cells really mean nothing and yet mean everything if painted by a wrong gender these dead cells mean nothing yet everything I cannot pretend as if these dead cells mean nothing to me I come from a family of long hair dead cells gave us a place in society dead cells gave us worth and value in our community I grew up believing these dead cells made me different from others mine were somehow good Dead cells coming out naturally kinky coily raising toward the sky defying gravity defying whiteness defying America these dead cells people pay to replace to enhance to change to mold these dead cells for many define who they are
