Look at me...
As I stand here in the mirror,
I admit that a lot of days I miss it,
But today... right now,
It couldnít be any clearer.
I am a whole damn meal,
And I mean a 12 course,
So I sat down to compose this small self affirmation,
A reminder, if you will... of my worth.
With legs as long as sin,
And my beauty naturally acquired,
I am well read,
I am well written,
So it makes me a fire writer...
As woke as a newborn out the womb,
I stand here in all my glory,
Deciding that today thereís just no room,
No room, and no time for self-doubt & worry.
Lips as soft as they could be,
And my words drip with honey whenever I speak,
I am quite content knowing that thereís only one of me,
Confident that anything you compare me to seems like a knockoff & frankly kind of cheap,
As I stand in the mirror,
Admiring me... here in all my glory.
I am feeling myself,
Even knowing my ability to drop grown men to their knees,
...maybe I can make Ďem a bit crazy,
But what can I say? Im potent,
Itís hard to handle me.
Vision clear, I am already miles ahead,
So many downloads,
And things I donít even know how I know
Already in my head...
Wise beyond my years,
More than my scars
And greater than my fears,
I stand in all my glory,
Right here in the mirror.
Pausing to take it all in,
Every curve, every stretch mark
Everything I always wanted to keep hidden,
I now understand makes me the most priceless art.
