    I’m so beautiful


    I’m the epitome of beauty
    Raised upon a pedestal for the whole world to see
    Look at me…aren’t I pretty?

    When I strut a million eyes are transfixed
    My very presence defines the glory of womanhood
    I grace the covers of every man magazine
    Showcased as Miss Universe no matter who really wins
    Look at me…aren’t I pretty?

    Tossing my hair constantly because the gel I use is not enough
    I need to play in it
    Remind others theirs is not as fine and stringy as mine
    The most expensive shampoos grace this mane
    My face
    My face…
    A thin line defined as my mouth is dreamily pursued
    Because
    Every breed of man wishes to kiss them
    They are perfect
    So am I
    Aren’t I pretty?

    These eyes are the color of the deepest blue sea
    My nose is narrow and utterly perfect
    Strolling with confidence I am irresistible
    Charismatic
    Enigmatic
    The black man loves me
    Look at me…aren’t I pretty?

    Flawless model I am
    Victoria’s Secret was created for me
    The very definition of anorexia
    Bulimia
    I got the world thinking to be a size nothing is
    The standard of what it is to be so **** beautiful
    Look at me…aren’t I pretty?

    This tan was a gift by way of sunburn
    Maybe I ultraviolet-ed myself too long
    I
    Don’t
    Care
    I am so **** beautiful
    The whole earth’s male population wants me as Queen
    Who cares that I have brought down many of those in power?
    A piece of my essence was worth it
    Oh what a joy to breathe the me when I meet water
    The smell is unmistakable
    Like the sweetest pork
    Look at me…aren’t I pretty?

    The real Queen can’t compete
    Too argumentative
    Too feisty
    Too regal
    Her men chase me
    Because
    I
    Am very submissive
    Do whatever will please the God
    No matter how much I am degraded
    I will continue on until the other woman has faded…
    Aren’t I here to do as man says?
    Look at me…aren’t I pretty?

    My conclusion is…
    My appearance is no delusion and…
    Although I may always cause confusion
    There are absolutely no illusions

    I am beautiful
    Complacent
    Subservient
    I have a secret
    Shhhhh
    There is collagen in my lips
    I conjure up ways to expand my hips
    I work out because I want a Queenly figure
    Go figure
    I am beautiful

    Look at me…aren’t I pretty?

    Hi GeorgeM
    Yes indeed

    This was an excellent twist to Miss Lady's "White Woman Down" especially coming from the male perspective!

    I loved it!
