Have a mind of your own.
Be patient—you’re always growing,
even when you can’t tell.
People will run their fingers through you
without asking, get caught in you, be
surprised that you say something.
Shrinking does not mean less.
What you see and what others see
can be very different altogether.
Never take for granted always having
something for your hands to clutch.
Curls are going to fall anyway,
so let yours fall because
you were dancing so hard.
