Look upon me with Joy for just-like-You,
Notice the texture of my hair and skin, I-Am-Beautiful
even if my skin color is different from yours.
Open your eyes and take a True look at me…
Can you not see a Child of God looking back at you?
Let not Envy govern your life for We are all Beautiful
in God’s Sight.
The way I talk, the shape of my eyes and nose only represent God
Look upon Me with Joy for just-like-You,
In My Mama's Eyes
In My Daddy's eyes
and In God's Eyes...
