Limp Curls

Limp curls
I miss your ancestors:
Because they had an indefinable beauty
That in someway defined me.
They sang their songs of perfect coil,
And stretched their might,
Returning in time to their first nature.

They held back tears,
Resisting the scorching heat,
Enduring painful lashes, and one too
Many they withstood,
Only to satisfy their owner.
And when they yearned for water,
A pure salvation, they received very little.

And now only you remain—
And when I see you,
I think of what power, what oomph, you lack,
The beauty you retract,
Because you are unable to recoil, to hold your own—
Your god-given nature.

You are closer to the white man than you think.

Enjoy study
