Woman, I hope you realize,
regardless of your size,
you are truly a prize!
You don't need a man to define,
nor to enhance or refine,
for on your own, you are fine.
Regardless of the makeup you wear,
or how you fix your hair,
the beauty within you is rare.
Let your inner light glow,
Woman, let the world know,
you're not afraid to let who you are show.
Be unique and be kind too,
and remember, for its true,
there is no one else in the world like you.
