My hair is long and strong.
No gray yet, won't be I bet
For quite a while as I smile.
I wear pony tails and braids.
I used to dye it different shades.
Now it's natural medium brown.
Liked being a blond, but no frown.
Is better to be what I'm meant to
Be, just the way God made me. You
See it's unusual to have blue eyes,
Brown of the earth, blue of the skies.
Years ago I had very, very long hair.
Letting it keep growing, not a stare
At my braids and pony tails, I like it.
I wear it down too or just put in clip.
