    Dark,dark eyes and skin like caramel cream
    Hair long and strong like the sea's gleam
    She walks with beauty and the grace of an eagle
    Not a man can control her weak as a beagle
    Personality of a young ambitious star
    Considered at the top of the list far from par
    Diamonds and pearls lace her neck and earlobes
    Attracting attention to her caramel covered globes
    The mouths of jealous females drop and drip with enmity
    Could it be lack of confidence or self-pitty?
    Her self-centered ego keeps her from caring about their feelings
    Only high priced prada and gucci concern her dealings
    A mother loves her at home in Brooklyn said,"Baby get an education."
    Being obedient she went,but did not learn
    Earned a degree yet her heart still burned
    For a life of gold,platinum,and Fendi was sizzling in her brain
    Wouldn't it be great if everyone in the world knew her name?
    But oh yes people did know her name back in college
    One of whom a man whose heart she held hostage
    She was loud oh yes and very direct
    Turned him inside out so he could get his stuff correct
    Considering him a friend whom she made love to constantly
    Confused him mixing love with lust
    Again she used her beauty to get what she must
    Met up with new aquaintances and friends
    Started their own fashions and played out trends
    Soon her age began to sneak up on her like a crook
    Like Murphy Lee say,"What's the hook?"
    ****Once so young and happy****
    ****Then a woman turned sassy****
    ****Eyes Glittery and lips of shimmery****
    ****False love and self love all rolled into one****
    ****Not everything gets portrayed by the sun****
    Deep inside her heart was a wreck
    Plunged into the deep green sea before a check
    Now she leads a life full of drugs,lies,and sex
    Everybody wants to be famous these days
    Doing extra things to get their ways
    To make water boil you must wait
    If you want to succeed and really make it great
    Stay true to you,your goals,and concentrate
    :wave:

    Gotta have more to rely on than just that outer package, have to have what doesn't fade with time. Deep flow.
