I am beautiful and I have dark skin

I am just as beautiful as any other woman. I’m a Black/African woman. I feel good on this inside about me. It’s not about the outside even though I wouldn’t change my skin color for another skin color. I really love being Black and Black is what I am. I feel like Whitman’s Song of Myself is the dopest poem. Leaves of Grass is a classic poetry book to me. I don’t think of being like anyone else. I admire other women but I don’t want to be another woman. I admire how some women older than I am have professions like woman doctor or woman lawyer or woman judge. I’m a poet. I’m a writer. I’m a blogger. I review books on amazon.com. I have 45 reviews on Yelp. I am Internet Ayesha with a Facebook page and almost 150 friends on Facebook. I have followers on Twitter and I have a LinkedIn profile that is getting me noticed. I do my own thing. I have a blog too! I like the things I do. My favorite thing I do is my poetry. My second favorite thing is memoir writing. My third favorite thing I do is blogging. My fourth favorite thing is volunteering with NAMI Mercer!
