     They’ll see how beautiful i am,

       I believe in my heart

         That i am beautiful.

     I believe in my heart that i am

      Just like everybody else,

       Some people don’t see

              My beauty.

    They see the color of my skin

       Dark and chocolate.

        People see that

        I am black and

         Be scared to get to

         Know me and don’t get to see

         How beautiful i am inside and out.

    People judge on a daily basis

        By race, color

         And looks.

    Sometimes as an African american

     Young lady i feel as if

     Others don’t like me

     Because of the skin i’m in


     I love me.

     I am beautiful inside and out.
     I am just like everybody else.
