We share this space together,
yet, you still hold all of the power.
“I am afraid to make you feel you uncomfortable”.
Because you believe you are entitled
To touch my hair! Since you feel it’s tangible.
Have you forgotten this was my personal space?
We do not have to make this about race,
you have violated my basic right to coexist in this place.
By touching part of my body,
without asking me
As if I am the one somehow who is crazy.
Why am angry?
While you feel it’s okay for you to exert your supremacy,
I simply would like for you to know, I belong to me.

Do not touch my hair!
