Melanated Goddess
I love to see an empress
liberated from the shackles
of the golden threads her head bares.
Whether bald, loc'd or nappy,
a melanated goddess
standing tall in her liberation
from European standards
is undeniable beauty to behold.
Like the first fresh flower of spring.
Nefertiti embellished in diamonds.
Because despite being taught
that her hair is her beauty,
and should be adorned with vanity,
she has realized her true allure
comes from every natural kink
and twist her ancestors crowned her with.
Queen Amina in her prime.
