Trials

Trials

A Poem by BriBri

My Mother's womb 
produced a beautiful babygirl
that wore ribbons around her head
identification for the world
She grew
And locked her locs
Common place in her community 
Beads her constant companion 
until her maturity 
She grew
Straighten strands 
Rounding  out her education
Heated tools and creams
relaxing the world's impatience 
Life is such a trial

This has a set pace to the entirety of the verse...you've put forth a story line in a few words...gives us as a reader a theme to follow and yet unfolds before us in relatively a manner in which you present this to us...the break with the repeating stanza:

She grew...

helps the passage move along the lines of this read...and you did give us an ending...that all can grasp...yet we all have a different route or in this case...as you word the phrase:

Life is such a trial
