Beauty, inside and out


I am black
I am beautiful
inside and out

I am black
I am beautiful
my voice is medium toned, I try not to shout

I am black
I am beautiful
I don't let anyone put me down

I am black
I am beautiful
Though sometimes I may act as a clown

I am black
I am beautiful
I'm filled with such pride

I am black
I am beautiful
I'll make such a wonderful bride

Black and Beauty
that describes the outside of me

Nice or mean, you have to decide
To me and most people I am nice inside

I am beautiful, I am black
I am black, I am beautiful

    'Nice or mean, you have to decide
    To me and most people I am nice inside'

    the sentences quoted give me a second thought that people always like to wear mask whether they have a nice heart

    thx for your good job (Report) Reply
