My Crown of Glory, by Melissa King


I was born with my crown of glory

A beautiful curly, kinky, queer mass of blackish-brown

I was born with my crown of glory

Its bounce, fluffs and stands proud with its oil shine

I was born with my crown of glory

Believing it was the most beautiful hair in town

I was born with my crown of glory

Excited that it was all mine


I went to school with my crown of glory

A beautiful curly, kinky, queer mass of blackish-brown

I went to school with my crown of glory

Its bounce, fluffs and stands proud with its oil shine

I went to school with my crown of glory

Found out that day it was the ugliest hair around

I went to school with my crown of glory

Realized that my hair was not beautiful or divine


I went through life with my crown of glory

A beautiful curly, kinky, queer mass of blackish-brown

I went through life with my crown of glory

Its bounce, fluffs and stands proud with its oil shine

I went through life with my  crown of glory

Thinking the most beautiful hair had to be found

I went through life  with my crown of glory

Straight and Silky became my not-so-secret shrine


I woke up one day with my crown of glory

A beautiful curly, kinky, queer mass of blackish-brown

I woke up one day with my crown of glory

Its bounces, fluffs and stands proud with its oil shine

I woke up one day with my crown of glory

Straightening my taira with my head held up high

I woke up one day with my crown of glory

Realizing the greatness in the word diverse

I woke up one day with my crown of glory

No longer questioning the reason why

I woke up one day with my crown of glory

Excited that this was all mine


I woke up one day with a crown of glory

Declaring it was the most beautiful crown in universe
