Magnificent.

I am more than one thing,

More than a woman

Like that Aaliyah’s song sings.

More than a pretty, solemn face.

More than the sum of my heartaches.
_____________________
I am more than society says

I should be.

More than the ground

On which you try to trample me.
_____________________
The sun rests at my feet,

The clouds are my pillows.

They give me sweet dreams,

I rise high above every defeat.
_____________________
I am magnificent

In the face of mediocrity.

I am the twinkling light

That shines on diamond rings.
_____________________
My aura shines bright,

Illuminating every path I walk.

I am not the woman of your dreams:

I am so much more.
