Bliss - a hair story




I felt my head nagging with pain
I let stress get to me again
I can't keep popping these pills
I knew better than to indulge in analgesics
It never does the body any good

I filled my tub with fresh water
Not minding my freshly made twists out
I dumped myself inside
I soaked in there for about an hour
And all the pains were gone

I can't remember the last time I experienced such bliss
Perhaps, when I was a kid
Not worrying about messing up my perms or weaves
I felt the water seeping through my head and feet
I'd love to feel that more often

I dried my hair and combed it out
I made a quick dash in front of the mirror
In less than 5 minutes, I had a whole new look
Oh the versatility of natural hair
Why did I ever hesitate in making this move?
