Find yourself throughout the dark shadows

I am beautiful inside and out
Even with all the flaws that come with my curvy body
No I'm not a size 2
But my intelligence and beauty runs through
Being able to love myself is the best part about life
No one will understand you the way you do
Look pass the negative thoughts and come through
I'm living life and so should you
My black community is falling apart
But our hardwork and beauty should bring us back together
So I ask you are you willing to live ?
Or are you going to be invisible to our confusing world ?
Stand out and be yourself
No one can bring you down if you don't believe
Express yourself even with your flaws
But don't be the ghost who gives up and falls

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
Our world
