*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*

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
You’re beautiful
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…
