What do you see?

If you bought a copy of Webster's

you'd see the word beautiful.

Below it you might even find a picture of me.

I am beautiful.

It's not because of the configuration of my face,

Nor is it the circumference of my waist.

It is the way I hold my head high when I walk,

The way I light up when I talk

about my passions.

It is in my voice, my words

The way I refuse to go unheard.

I am beautiful because because I choose to be.

I am beautiful because I am unapologetically me.
