I’m beautiful
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 a disguise
Only the mirror can see me when I’m happy and sad.
