I am Beautiful! I am a Woman!

 

In the dark of the night shining bright is me

My God I am beautiful

Weaved, curly,kinky,long, straight,short, braided and all over the place.

I am Beauty even on my worst of days

My smile bright and shiny

Even when I am sad I am the essence of Beauty

Carrying babies on my back, working full time and yet

In all my mess

I am Beautiful

I am Queen

To know me is to love me

To desire me

You'll learn the depths of my soul

Learn the power of my attitude has help warriors win the war

I give strength to the weak

I am Power when the lights go dim

I bring forth life

I love with my heart

I have built legacies of King and Queens

I water the concrete and grew roses from it

I as a woman I rule over land flourish it with fruits

I've built businesses and made millions

I ran with cheetahs and howl at the wolves

At the end of the day

I am not just a color

I am Beautiful
