Somethin’ about seeing my face embraced by the haloish fuzziness of my fro
Takes me back to a time of first love, my first real mandingo bro´
I also taste the North Carolina fish fries
Old time religion,
And back seat car sighs(um hum!)
Yes, the football games and cheerleading squads,
Ashy legs and bake sales after church, rioting mobs
And Stokely Carmichael,
Jackson Five, Angela Davis, tryin´ to save us
Jesse Jackson, James Brown,
“Say it loud, I’m Black and I ´m proud!”
Makes me revel in my pride
Tired of covering, pulling, straightening, conforming to be somethin I ain´t
I am what I am can´t be what I can´t
Naps and ashy legs
That’s the real Mccoy
Embracing it all
Givin me so much joy.
At ease, see
Unleashed, feng shui
To flow easily….
And that´s all from feelin my fro’ flow…easily..
