I began my ascendance to “consciousness” by shaving my head.
I thought my claim to fame lay atop my head.
But I was lied to.
We were young and accepted the lye.
Only to grow older to embrace the lie.
Kinks are who we are.
Some of us are wound up tighter than others.
But consciousness is a process.
Processed hair and a natural mind is the goal.
So I’ll take or leave my lye.
The jewels in my crown are within.
