Hair Wars and Self-Care

Spoiler Alert: This is a “Hair Appreciation” post.

Yall. I used to be the queen of bone straight hair which over time ended up damaging it. Literally took me 10 years to become comforatble with my natural curl pattern. Would have never worn my hair like this even two or three years ago. My hair and I have come so far. 😄

Through Thicke & Thin

34. 26. 37.

Measurements that every female body

secretly wishes it could maintain.
Noble yet, futile tries to convince
ourselves we can refrain
from following the daily marketing campaigns

and make bolder statements than those
models draping pencil skirts over eraser thin waists
and paper thin hips and thighs.  
We pretend to be surprised
when friend number five
tries the Hollywood diet of the week
and friend number nine
commits to a lemon juice and vodka routine
treating themselves on a good day to a handful grapes.

And we’re actually wondering if they’re on to something 

since all we really want to do is skip dinner,

call it a night early, and sleep off the hunger pains.

Dear Fuckboy,

​Head stay in the clouds.

Skin stay immaculately Brown.

Building empires up from the ground. 

Queen on my throne, you should probably bow.

Seeing how I get down,

got you wishing I kept you around.

But stay a fuckboy and stay getting clowned.

-Sincerely, Tyra
