    I don’t know about other females
    But I love to be my man’s fresh & new
    Not His old and stale.
    I may not be the loveliest daughter He has ever proclaimed,
    But I desire to know that I’m His Miss Beautiful all the same.

    I may not be the sexiest darling to glide in your sight,
    Nor may I be the finest face you’ve kissed in delight,
    And I don’t have to be THE attractive butterfly, physically and perfectly right,
    As long as you saw me as beautiful
    Though to you, I’m just alright.

    I know I’m the your most attractive,
    Nor I’m I the most arousing,
    Nor I’m I the most kissable,
    Or I’m I the most irresistibly charming.
    I’m not the most intelligent,
    Nor I’m I the most head strong.
    I’m not the most fashionable
    And I know I didn’t look the best in my thong.
    I’m not the most humorous,
    Nor I’m I the most gracious.
    I’m not the darling with the softest skin
    Because then you would be avid to caress me
    Rather than feel chagrined.
    I’m not the one with the most elegant style
    Nor the one with the most captivating bright smile.
    I’m not the most interesting to you,
    And I know I’m not the caliber you normally pursue.

    From the start you never saw me special,
    My specialness grew after a-while.
    And my so called eminence is nothing at all
    Nothing that has you enthralled.
    Nothing so great that you would avow it with delight.
    But rather cover and perform it in the darkness of the night.
    Something I know you shared with Your Most Beautiful before
    My specialty is common and as familiar as a whore

    I get you on this, when the love is there you see in that person qualities that are enhanced by that love. This was deep. Keep writing.

    INFERior grADE woMAN

    help me to understand
    is this your take
    or did you have the help of your man
    did he instill this in you
    inferring it's true
    inferior grade woman
    is that really you?

    allow me...

    you are the smile
    in response to the morning sun
    your warmth...soothing
    your caress...fun
    when nighttime finds us
    alone
    in our home
    i know that i'm love
    by the things you've shown
    your gentleness
    your touch
    your faithfulness and care
    the taste of your beauty
    and the softness you share
    tells me more about this woman
    who's special to me
    inferior
    i think not
    but superior
    indeed.

    LET THE RIVER FLOW.
