to all of my beautiful girls

the ones with the straight hair and bountiful curls

the world will never clearly understand 

that our beauty and brains work hand-in-hand

even though there are ridiculous expectations

do not involve In discrimination

we all might not look alike but that’s life

don’t allow preference to become the prejudice

we all know that true beauty never gets justice

allow yourself to embrace your face

those features can’t be defined by anyone else, any time, or any place

rub your soft skin 

don’t cover it up with makeup because the real you lies within

love your curves, your spine, and those gorgeous thighs

put on lipgloss for your lips and mascara for those virtuous eyes

your stretch marks aren’t a hideous sight

they remind that your body is a tree that’s growing upright

to all of my beautiful girls

do what’s best for you

because you’re the only one that can rise above you
