Remember

*Old poem that I forgot I wrote. Haha. I don't think it's as good as the last one I uploaded but I'm behind so here you go*

REMEMBER
 
Beauty is a state of mind
 
That envelops mankind
 
And leaves people blind
 
To who they truly are
 
 
You feel the need to be a superstar
 
Coating your face
 
With waxes and pastes
 
Trying to hide what God took His time to create
 
 
Your rejection of your perfection
 
Is the neglection of His vision
 
That He instilled upon you
 
Yet you think your life ain’t worth living
 
 
I got cuts and bruises down my hands and feet
 
I bleed oil spills but I’m still sexy
 
Skin dark as ebony, but I don’t give a **** what you’re telling me
 
Eyes like black holes so they pierce to your soul
 
 
Your misguided reality
 
Becomes your fatality
 
And your willing abduction
 
Becomes your destruction
 
 
You isolate yourself in a dark abyss
 
Where you reminisce
 
Over the existence you lead…
 
Yet your hands do not bleed
 
 
Your shadow doesn’t show
 
On the wall where you sit
 
Whitewashed like your skin
 
Cuz you’re feeling like shit
 
 
Drugs, gangs, and sex
 
Become your everyday life
 
Cuz it’s all you got left
 
And it’s all that feels right
 
 
Why must your absence be the cessation of everyone’s existence?
 
And why must everyone’s existence be the reason for your absence?
 
 
You don’t have to be zero in size
 
With golden-brown eyes
 
For others to notice
 
That you are alive
 
 
With all your hips and your thighs
 
You will cause their demise
 
With your dark chocolate eyes
 
You will be glorified
 
 
Remember your name
 
Recognize your existence
 
And when people talk shit
 
Don’t even bother to listen
 
 
Cuz while others just have beauty
 
You have that…plus your brains
 
You have that…plus your pride
 
And people will know your name
 
 
While others just give good sex
 
You give good conversation
 
You can strut your stuff
 
And rock the whole nation
 
 
You don’t need Next Top Model
 
Telling you that you’re fly
 
You don’t need Covergirl
 
To tell you how to get by
 
 
And you don’t need a man
 
Trying to take control
 
All you need is your mind, heart, body, and
 
SOUL
 
 
Remember
 
You’re beautiful
 
Remember
 
You’re chill
 
They can say what they want
 
And think what they will
 
 
He made you with a purpose
 
So go on and live
 
And to all of your haters
 
Forget and forgive…
 
I got cuts and bruises down my hands and my feet
 
I bleed oil spills but I’m still sexy
 
 
Honey, my skin so dark it puts midnight to shame
 
But I don’t give a ****
 
As long as you remember…
 
MY NAME
