I put my best dress on,
accentuate my eyes,
fix my hair
by making it look shiny,
matching shoes and bag,
because I want you
to see me.
I tell my best stories
as loud as I can,
I laugh and giggle
while looking your way,
because I want you
to hear me.
I dance, move my hips,
touch my hair, lick my lips,
looking at you,
trying to get attention.
If only you could see 
what’s inside.
Look at me, treasure,
I am as pretty as can be,
I want to catch your eyes,
so you can see the real me.
