My Life's Boast

Written by: Lucretia Isaac

 THE GROUNDS I WALK ON IS TOO WORTHY FOR ALL TEN TOES ON YOUR FEET.

THE AIR I BREATHE IS TOO ROYAL FOR YOUR LUNGS.

YOUR EYES AND EARS ENOUGH ARE NOT SHARP ENOUGH FOR WORDS I SPEAK.

YOU ALL CAN NEVER BE ONE OF A KIND, FOR THAT ONE OF A KIND IS ME.

I WOULD NOT BLAME YOU IF YOU ENVY ME.

YET, STILL I HAVE NO ANIMOSITY.

MY LOOKS ARE TEMPTING AND MY EYES WILL HYPNOTIZE

THE EXAMPLE OF INNOCENCE RESTS UPON MY FACE.

THE MIDDLE CHILD YES THAT IS I.

VERY CANTANKEROUS YET ATTITUDE OF A DOVE.

BEAUTY IS MY FEATURES IN AND OUT WHILE SASSY IS MY MOUTH.

YOU ALL DON'T STAND A CHANCE

I'M A KILLER WHALE AND YOU ALL ARE JUST TROUTS.

SO GET IN LINE AND WAIT YOUR TURN

FOR I'M A GODDESS AND THAT YOU'LL LEARN.

NOW DON'T BE SHAME

JUST TURN TO YOUR NEIGHBORS FOR THEM TOO ARE ONE OF MY MANY HATERS.
