    In her “ugly” days
    she hated her ugly ways
    But she’s pretty now

    Today she walks tall
    when she strolls the mall
    Cause she’s pretty now

    her self-esteem went through the roof
    the day the old herself went Poof!
    Snap! She’s pretty now

    Hair now long, silky and straight
    she got the most graceful gait
    and she’s pretty now

    She thanks God for tummy tucks
    To her worth every buck
    Behold she’s pretty now

    Prada and Mac
    How will she ever pay them back
    since she’s pretty now

    Her nails stay “fixed”
    Some people even think she’s “mixed”
    See she’s pretty now

    Mens look her way
    Each and every day
    Yes she’s pretty now

    She sees the “uglies” get picked o’er
    As stampedes beat down her door
    Knowing she’s pretty now

    She gets her pick o’ the litter
    No longer feels so bitter
    For she’s pretty now

    She’s pretty now

    Through shallow eyes of blind beholders

    Some unfortunately don't see the beauty they already possess inside, depending upon the outward applause of others. On point poet.

    Nice read! The inner beauty will ultimately upset everyone's outer appearance in time.
