Transcript of Poem Prezi

Brown Beauty by: Ni-Ni Simone
My Baby by: Aaliyah Rucker Brown Beauty
is limitless.
It is not confined to the size of your thighs
the color of your eyes
or your brain size.....
It has nothing to do with your waist,
your face,
or how nice that cutie told you your booty
It is not bound by religion =, race, or

you mama,
her mama,
big mama's mama...
It is unmeasurable
and oh so fabulous....
It cannot be bound by circumstance
or a missed chance....
It does not die
It does not fly
It dreams
and loves
and believes
that it can be anything
It wants to be...
It is a quiet rebel
a lady with a cause
a little girl with a mission
standing tall
and demanding for the world to see
that she
is Brown Beauty My baby
My man
My darling you
You amazing
There's no one like you
When you kiss me
When you hold me
I'm so glad that you chose me
I can't believe how much you care
I can tell with those eyes so gentle and fair
Amazed by every word
Struck down by every glance
Can't seem to let you go
Our love is like a slow dance
Holding onto these moments
Forever these I will treasure
Cherishing every second with you
