NO, there’s no utterly blank stare in these eyes
Only what’s left when stripped away are the perfections and lies
Beauty in its more purified state
Absolutely stunning outside its perceived hate
The absolution of my black is beautiful, a scene that society tries to forever mitigate
Yet, profound strength rests upon this face
The boldness of her beauty signifies her defiance against anything in her way
That look of courage she gives to tell US to live to fight another day
Although those eyes bear pain they reveal triumph and confidence all in the same.
That through trials and battles there is always something to gain.
No, she won’t be celebrated as timeless art, when are we ever?
With her big nose, big lips, big hair, I say the bigger the better.
She is what we are underneath the smile, underneath the past that we lock away.
She is the real behind who we really are and what we say
She is a reflection of our naked truth
Exposed, vulnerable but all the more beautiful.-AP
