Hiding Behind the curtains


She spoke loud and talks with a voice that unheard of

she spoke loud and theres no face revealed

she spoke loud and the words that she is saying is rhyming to such rhythm that the crowd that stands there before the curtains begins creating an illusion Idol of her

she spoke loud and behind the curtain she: the African American girl whose obese, dark skin, and has short black nappy hair is being heard

she spoke loud hiding behind the curtains

the curtains which had hidden the lies and told the truth

beauty is the person inside you

she spoke loud and so did her beauty and though her features are judges and sometimes unloved

she spoke loud and the curtains its self could not keep her talents hidden

hiding behind the curtains speaking loudly verses and lines

reward with applauds and standing novations every time

hiding behind the curtains She was loud, and beautiful in the eye's and ears of crowd

It was she the outcast of society

The unshaped fit for a magazine or high school cheerleading squad

it was she hiding behind the curtains
