(A Poem)

What do you see when you look at me.

Do you see someone limited, or someone free.


All some people can do is just look and stare

Simply because they can't see my hair.


Others think I am controlled and uneducated

They think that I am limited ann un-liberated.


They are so thankful that they are not me

Because they would like to remain 'free'.


Well free isn't exactly the word I would've used

Describing women who are cheated on and abused.


They think that I do not have opinions or voice

They think that being hooded isn't my choice.


Maybe the guys won't think I am a cutie

But at least I am filled with more inner beauty.


See I have declined from being a guy's toy

Because I won't let myself be controlled by a boy.


Real men are able to appreciate my mind

And aren't busy looking at my behind.


I will be recognized because I am smart and bright

And because some people are inspired by my sight.


You see we are not controlled by a mini skirt and tight shirt

We are given only respect, and never treated like dirt.


We are the ones that are free and pure

We're free of STD's that have no cure.


So when people ask you how you feel about the hood

Just sum it up by saying 'baby, it's all good'.
