Once Upon a Curl... a Poem

So awhile back I had one of my talented  college classmate Chellsea Lynn write a poem, and I have to say  loved it....! it was/ is awesome,

Braids, Locs, Pin Curls
Plaits, Buns, Ponytails
Connected by Ribbons and Barrettes

High-top Fades, Ducktails, and Braids
Enhanced with beads and circular Waves
Curly Hues of Sandy Brown, Blonde, Red and Black Tresses
Mapped out strategically on top of their Crowns

Multicultural smiles on masses of high and low cheekbones
Centered by toothless grins
Smirks with dimpled cheeks and chins

Once Upon A CurlThere were little Boys and Girls
Loving themselves
For whom they were born to be

Beautiful Princes and Princesses
One day to evolve into Kings and Queens

Once Upon A CurlStraight, Kinky, Curly, Nappy
When curl patterns didn’t matter

Once Upon A CurlWhen life was much simpler

and did i mention, she not only writes, but has an awesomegenresall  voice, in all genres
