“In the morning. From the minute I wake up. What if I don’t want to put on all that makeup? Who are you to say I must conceal my natural beauty. Maybe all this Maybelline is covering up my self-esteem.”
Black Curvy Woman
Cultivate your curves black curvy woman.
They may be dangerous but they won’t be avoided. Curvy women wonder where their secret lies. I’m not built to suit a fashion model’s size But when I start to tell them, They think I’m telling lies. “I say, It’s in the reach of my arms, The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips.” I’m a black curvy woman. In life, as in art. The beautiful moves in a black woman curves.
I found my way to meditation,
and I started focusing on clarity and a deeper knowing of myself. And I promised I would approach things differently this time regarding my image and allow my real self, as is, to come through.
I love the idea of embracing my curves
and loving myself while expressing it through fashion. I’m a black curvy woman and that will never change. Men themselves have wondered What’s different about me. They try so much But they can’t touch My inner mystery. When I try to show them, They say they still can’t see.
I say It’s in the arch of my back,
the sun of my smile, the ride of my breasts and the grace of my style. I’m a Black curvy woman. I’m so excited to be here. Really, really excited. Okay, I’ll get to it. Hi. One of the first things people usually ask me is if My Womanhood Is Not A Fraud!!! I’m not ashamed of who I am and that I have curves and that I’m thick. I like my black curvy body.
