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.
