Continuous Transition

What's the point of this natural hair journey?
When will I reach my destination?
When will I really feel like I know my hair?

Although I am very comfortable with my new 'do, I can't help but wonder "What's next?"

Sometimes I see another black woman with natural hair, and I think to myself, "I can't wait until my hair is her length." Before I realize it, I'm asking myself how long it took her to grow her hair to that length. 

I can't even ask myself if it's about the journey or the destination, because I don't know the destination. When do I wake up and feel like I'm there? I'm not there yet. I feel like I'm still transitioning.
