- UPDATE 12/18/11 UPDATE
- My name is Cha'e(pronounced like Chay not Shae)..lol..To start with this journey came outta nowhere.I mean I was on youtube oneday and this video popped up.It said natural hair at the top and I was curious so I clicked on it and it was like a window in my life was opening.I know it does sound kinda dramatic but its true.I've always loved the way fros,twist,waves,and just big hair in general looks on me and everyone for that matter.I think its sexy.Now, I am not that much of a girly girl so I hated to do my hair,get perms,weaves,and all that crap.I just wanted to be able to do my hair quick and feel comfortable about it.Not worrying about was a track showin and stupid stuff like that.I felt like I was living this superficial life.And I have never been a conformist and I didn't want to start with my hair.I wanted to be able to wake up in the morning look into the mirror and say,"Yes this is me, all me, naturally,the way God intended me to be!"And at that very moment I felt like God had put his hands on me an instantly made me a better person.It's something only us naturals can experience,I WISH EVERYONE WAS NATURAL so they could feel how we feel ya'll!We are truly blessed to be able to except ourselves and others so I just want to thank ya'll fort that!GOD BLESS

Still I Rise
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history's shame
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
As I Grew Older
It was a long time ago.
I have almost forgotten my dream.
But it was there then,
In front of me,
Bright like a sun--
And then the wall rose,
Between me and my dream.
Rose until it touched the sky--
I am black.
I lie down in the shadow.
No longer the light of my dream before me,
Only the thick wall.
Only the shadow.
My dark hands!
Break through the wall!
Find my dream!
Help me to shatter this darkness,
To smash this night,
To break this shadow
Into a thousand lights of sun,
Into a thousand whirling dreams
