OMG, I Love Your Hair!


Beautiful Girl with Beautiful Hair

.

OMG! I love your hair!

I hear, yet again

.

Question:

Is IT an artistic or political statement?

‘None of the above’, I claim…

Question:

‘Is it really yours?’

‘Yes, I guess. I didn’t pay’

.

‘Amazing! Great!’

‘Although,’ (me again)

‘I can’t keep it when I’m dead.

So, can I really say it is mine…?

Yes, I guess, but no – it’s not…’

.

Here, a pause… It’s followed by

An awkward & ironic smile.

Uncomfortable silence falls

Until… another passes by…

Right now, she hears – “Rapunzel, Wow!”

‘What a queen indeed. Your hair is so fly.’

.

‘Yes, I know…’ I hear her say…

With every tooth on full display

The Hair Show must go on, with another muse…

.

Oh, Lord – don’t let me be misunderstood,

You’ve blessed me indeed with long and thick hair

Even in those places where hair should be spare.

Yet,

My eyes have seen this amazing crown

Pulled with so much hate amongst pain and lies…

Shaved, in less than a minute, with a primitive razor;

While Love’s eyes compelled mine to pay close attention!

.

It seems so unfair that,

She pays two hairdressers every single day

Buying IT from her who’s compelled to sell…

So her child can eat, at least one more day…

.

The other one’s hair is the enemy’s nest

She is lacking drinking water; her scalp’s in distress

She is homeless. Yet, on her head, parasites reside

They seek nutrients, in her blood, which they fail to find…

.

Still… My eyes enjoy its beauty –

Long, short, slick, locks, natural and wigs

Just,

‘LOVE’ sounds like an overstatement,

‘LIKE’ meets the expression’s needs.

Treasure in a Girl

.

She wants to be pleasing to her mum and dad

She feels like she’s not…, again and again

She’s their little girl, and although they love

Often times, they fail to express it well.  

.

She’s a beautiful girl, and a mighty force

Her name’s Wise and Strong.

There is wisdom hidden deep within her heart

It just needs to grow… to show…  

.

Her big eyes express pain, joy and faith

She believes… though she makes mistakes

She dances while counting during hide and seek

She’s so animated – her heart skips a beat!  

.

She begins the search for her mighty friend…

She finds. She begins to blaze trails…  

.

Daily, she leaves behind a positive trace,

She’s a mighty warrior serving in His Grace –

She learns to control her strength. She is strong.

Father smiles each time when she sings her song.
