Who I am

Thu, 02/26/2015 - 16:40 -- SSeriah


who am i without the cosemetics? I am a beautiful woman.
Excluding the lotion that lightens my skin
It's as dark & sweet as caramel candy.
My natural lucious lashes in no need of mascara to make it pop a bit.
Bare pink lips without gloss to make it shine a bit.
This is who i am. 

Who am i without chemicals in my hair?
While my hair touches my back when its straight
it reaches my shoulder in its natural state.
carrying volume without 'Treseme" 
Thanks to both my parents
my hair is as thick as my mothers and curly as my fathers.
this is who i am.
Who am i without filters to show my best assets?
I am God's perfect image, 
created not to satisfy others,
but to change the world for the better.
I am not a perfect human being.
I am only me.
