Au Natural (With Nature)

by VaShon J. Brown

I got tired of clipping split ends,

Keeping up with the latest trends,

Trying to impress men and my friends…

Not to mention the money I had to spend;

No more relaxers, perms, wigs, and weaves

Down my back,

I have embraced the Lord’s creation

Of me being black…

Black by nature

And nothing can change that;


Made from the seed 

And salt of the Earth,

My life’s destiny and agenda

Was already designated before my birth;

God has plans for all of His people

And He created us from the conception of His mind,

Forever connected by nature

And never severing the ties that bind;


Educating and elevating myself

And fulfilling my possibilities,

Giving up my life to God for His purpose

And to use me to the best of my abilities;

I’m going back, back, back to my roots…

Planting my spiritual seed, for spiritual growth,

And to produce spiritual fruits;


The media have so many people programmed

To what the world is supposed to be,

They are taking away from God’s essential quality

And originality;

I have to remove self to receive the blessings

That God has for me…

Manifesting and enhancing my spiritual bouquet

For the entire world to see.
