It was one busy morning in those rush hours
when I hopped into the bus heading town to run some errands,
I sat next to some guy his name was Musa.
He said hi and I replied with a smile
We talked about a lot of things
particularly about life and work
and he just began complementing my natural look.
He said he was impressed
with how natural I was,
am a kind of girl who keeps it all natural,
no make up and I always keep my African natural hair as it is.
So Musa said those words genuinely
and like any girl would, I felt good and appreciated
even though it was from a stranger.
In the back of my mind I knew he would then ask for my number as most guys do
but we reached the end
and said goodbye to each other just like that
and I have never seen him since then.
So what am trying to say here is that
sometimes people aren't always as thought of by the society,
so keep seeing the best in people instead of assuming worst things about them.
