Oh, she’s gorgeous, indeed she is.
She’s got the height.
she’s got the smile.
she’s got the brains.
Oh, she’s got it all, indeed she does.
She’s got the skin of a goddess,
Afro hair like the black queen she is,
Lips as plumped as a cherry,
But there’s something about those eyes, those beautiful brown eyes.
Beyond them, I see pain.
I see pain; indeed, I do.
Pain of deep wounds covered by ancient band-aids,
Agonizing pain released from the only organ that seems to remain active, no matter how many times wounded,
She fell a thousand times but came up came up 1,001.
She’s not meant to be broken.
She’s strong as ever, cautiously navigating this journey, we call life.
