Baby Girl, She Ready!!

by Xenia Escobar

Today I'm ready slay
Strutin the runway outfit on display
Eyes can't tare away Latina fire OKAY!!

Doin my thing she is the king
Hot as spring glisening skin bling
Only a fling keep the ring

Spitting straight fire crowd going haywire
Reppin His empire the blessings will transpire 
Electric live wire hyping up the good Lord's church choir

Playin no games dunk on em like Lebron James
All that remains my dust in flames
Melting the pains of a minority's chains

Aint no stoppin me now that I'm free
Can you not see I am the key
The referee of a reality
No longer a minority forced to live under the sea

On cloud nine walkin on sunshine
The devil I decline fate I desgin
Life I define victory is mine

Bust out the confetti
Whoop there it is unsteady
Party ready get real messy
Excitement by the dozen on plenty
Perm ready get all sweaty
Cause Baby Girl, SHE READY!!

Humorous Rhyming Poem contest entry

Baby girl is ready to start this new chapter in her life. Ready to graduate any day now. Finally the end of a chapter, so happy to begin the next. Before I do so, why not take a minute and celebrate. All my hard work, the all nighters, the endless assignments, the friends gained, the friends lost.

So much has happened these last 4 years of college. I've grown, I've experienced, I've only been served the appetizer, now it's time for the main course of life.

Wish me luck!!
