I just stumbled upon this poem about locs and I think I want to print it and frame it— it’s that good!
I have to admit though, I am biased when it comes to affirming content because I am always looking for gentle reminders of my greatness. I feel like the times we’re living do a far better job of sharing things that break you down, than build you up. So if I can consume positive things and spread them I am all for it! Which is why I truly appreciate you reading this poem about locs and I hope it resonates with you as much as it did for me:
Wasn’t that good?! It reminded me of one of my favorite poems “Ego Tripping” by Nikki Giovanni. Immediately after reading “Locks” I started googling the Poet, Sharon Leonard Goodman, to find more of her works because I truly enjoy that. Apparently, she has a book of poems titled “Inner Thoughts”, and as soon as I can find a copy I will be adding it to my library!
Leave me a comment and let me know how you felt after reading this poem about locs.
