Beauty Unleashed (As I Wear My Hair)

Beauty Unleashed (As I Wear My Hair)
By Te’Kia Miller

Not enough to get it
From those outside looking in
But added
Are those in my own clan
Who believe it a sin
To live comfortably in
The color of my skin
Condemning
That I let my hair
Run free in its glorious mane
Possessing the roar
Of a legion of ancient lions
Waves of spunky curls or
Rivers of ringlets and kinks of obsidian stone
To them I say ‘behold freedom’
I am not conformed to the image
Of another man’s beauty
I am its beholder and truthfully
I am beauty unleashed

Original. 2017.
