Pretty Myself Up

Spent 2 hours on this here hair of mine.

PERFECT.... Not a hair out of place.

Curly long lashes, blush, liner, and lipstick,

accentuating the contours of my face.

Oh... then there's the baddest outfit money can buy

and yes shoes to match... with heels so high.

"Man" you can't tell me I ain't fine

Yea I see you lookin wishing I would call you mine

Pretty on the surface....LOOK DEEPER

 But this is just the outer me

the shell I make up and cloth

My inside is what you cannot see

for it is not that bold.

The inner me likes to lounge around in my pj's

 and eat chips as crumbs hit my lap.

Leaving them there asleep I fall,

zzzzzz!!!!! A much needed nap 

I dream freely and comfortably, 

looking different from head to toe

Just a cute lil outfit, and a sexy, sassy fro.

This is the real me,

you just don't know.

All natural face

clear of stores make-up and shine

my profile without these extra's

makes me more beautiful and divine.

My heart and soul

caring, loving and kind

well seen by others when given the time.

So to pretty myself up,

sure... I dress up the outer me.

But my real beauty lies deeper

only with your heart you will see.



Is how I pretty myself up daily.
