Looking in the mirror 
What do I see?
A Beautiful Black Woman 
Staring at me
I don’t grace 
The cover of 
A Beauty Magazine
But I have been 
Known to cause
A scene
Carmel with a little swirl 
Is how 
I describe myself
Chocolate Eyes 
My inner soul
That only 
A true
Queen holds
Thin Lips 
But juicy 
Enough to kiss
A Smile 
That weakens 
The toughest thug
A Nose 
That knows
it’s regal 
I don’t grace 
The cover of 
Any Beauty Magazine
But what
A Beautiful Black Woman 
I Be
