Skin Deep Beauty

Updated on March 31, 2012

Skin Deep Beauty

Adding a couple pages to my story, how 'bout you.
Adding a couple lines to my poem, telling all that is true.
Adding a couple versus to my song, sung from deep within.
Adding a couple of switches to my walk, showing my inner seduction.
Adding a couple of braids to my hair, embracing my natural born dark tanned beauty.
Adding a couple tears to my years, overcoming heartache and experiencing love.
Adding a couple pounds to my waist, revealing my curves and excepting my lovely imperfections.
Adding a couple of loves to my life, shedding the child within bringing on deep urges of sensuality.
Adding a couple of long journeys to my soul, saving a few along the way.
Sharing all that I am, becoming what inspired me to come into my own SELF.
