I sang my hymn like this 

all women bright and beautiful

all women great and small

all women wise and wonderful

the Lord God made them all

slim thighs, no, thick thighs and wide noses 

arched brows that resembled the curves of girls and their mothers

clear in lace wrappers

but sometimes hidden in their covers 

i learnt that beauty can be made of all shapes and sizes 

can be light skinned or dark skinned 

could have acne or freckles 

could have rosy lips or big dark large ones too

which western media once viewed as taboo.
