This is me you guys! I am reading my slam poem "My Hair" At the 2012 Young Writers Conference ( I messed up the title. It should be CCYWC)
My Hair

I want to see it surrounding me
Falling on my shoulders for the last time
One symbol of my perceived self destroyed
My journey now begins.

A physical marker
to represent me.

Giant smile.

Call me Borris
or call me Sky
Just don't call me what I am not.

Don't assume you know my name
Why judge a book
Simply by the cover?

What is the cover anyway?
A physical marker painting a path
to what lies beneath.

But who hasn't seen a book which,
upon further inspection,
wore a mismatched cover?

Removing the cover seems easy enough
Til copyright
and birth certificates
get involved.

But cutting my hair?

Easy enough.
