I’m smiling and laughing.

I’m just beautiful the way I am
Without any piercings
I have some freckles caused by the sun
I have braids
I’m just natural
And I like the way I am.

I have small eyes
I have big dark eyes
I’m active and happy
My image says that I am a “young, black, brave girl”
I love who I am and the way I am.

Only the mirror can see the pain in my eyes
It can see my life through disguise
Only the mirror can see me when I’m happy and sad.

Mirror on the wall…
