I Am Beautiful! (Italian (Petrarchan) Sonnet)
Poem By Leslie Alexis
In-case you don't know, I am very cute!
Take a good look at my lovely smile,
You’ll have to let your eyes cure for a while,
But you will notice that I speak the truth.
Although my head looks like run-over fruit,
And my skin goes well with a crocodile's,
And Lotion - bathing always proves futile;
I know it's fact that I am very cute!
For every day God calls me beautiful
And when He made me, He said, 'this is good.'
My cracked skin and flat nose are beautiful.
It took a while before I understood,
But standing I can boast, I'm BEAUTIFUL!
And if I feel this way, anyone could.
