I am beautiful.

I walk with my head up.

No looking to the left or the right of me.

Nobody could bring me down


I am my own person.


I am courageous.

Not because of the length of my hair.

The beauty in my face.

The junk in the trunk.


But the beauty thats inside of me.


I am a follower.

Not of friends.

Not of enemies.

Not of co-workers.


But of God.


I may fall down once, twice, or maybe three times.

But.. I will tell you 

When I'm knocked down

I stand right back up.


I will not back down from my enemies, my success, and all the good that comes after.

I am Beautiful.
