After I finished laughing about this, it occurred to me that the boyfriend would have had an easier time staying away from the girlfriend than he would have parting with his locks. Locks are sacred to whomever wears them. Not anyone can touch them or maintain them. Energies of the person allowed to come in contact with locs have to be felt and received. It’s an intimate relationship.
Women come and go, but locs are nurtured, loved, protected, respected, cultivated…almost entirely a spiritual discipline for loc wearers. I guarantee all the father had to do was threaten to cut them off he didn’t stop seeing his daughter and the decision would have been clear…bye bye daughter.
How do you think this should have been handled? Leave your comments below.
