even when he ugly, he beautiful. . .

my brother be beautiful.
even when dat nigga ugly
i see him,
all the pieces,
even the ones he try to hide from me
i see him
he be beautiful

i wonder
do he see what i see?
do he see
he beautiful?

he be looking
at his reflection to show him something to love
he be looking
at his reflection to show him something he love
he be looking
at his reflection to show him something he never seen
he be looking
at his reflection to show him something they said ain’t true

niggas ain’t beautiful?

he be looking
at his reflection to show him something
something to affirm his existence, make him giggle, and remind him his fleshly body been beautiful.
he be looking
at his reflection to show him something he ain’t never seen
he be looking
at his reflection to show him something
something that give him pride
something that make him proud

he be looking
