Innocent Manipulation

I am innocence,

Bouncing, brunette curls,

Fresh, freckly, bright complexion,

Naïve, sweet, unburdened—innocence.


I am conformity,

Sleek, straightened locks,

Powdered, plucked, plastic complexion,

Imitated, manipulated, meek—conformity.


I am empowered,

Natural, highlighted strands,

Lightly powdered, freckly, vivid complexion,

Independent, evolutionary, informed—empowered.
