Hair Today… Gone Tomorrow…Beauty Remains…

Hair…Everybody has their own opinions, desires and none of us seem to be happy with what we have. The old adage that if its straight we want curly and vice versa. If we don’t have hair nowadays we go buy it and adorn ourselves with the vision of beauty in our minds eye.  We have the afrocentric who feel its our God given right to be who and as we are.  We have religious hair grown or shaved to bring us closer to our vision/version of the Spirit.

Even by those closest to u…Judas had NOTHING on ur detractors. ALL OF THIS WILL STING, MAIM AND ALMOST KILL UR SPIRIT…BUT U WILL SURVIVE…so don’t change U.
