I first heard this poem in "Poetic Justice"... I still have to watch that movie when I see it's on cable. We ladies should all read this on our "fat" days, "bad hair" days, "my boyfriend's an idiot and left me" days, and "I didn't get that job" days. I think a lot of young ladies today should read this. I don't think emulating a Snooki or Lindsay or Kardashian makes a woman phenomenal.
Mami always said "Cuando te sientas mal es cuando te debes arreglar mas todavia.. Te hace sentir mejor..!" meaning when you feel your worst is when you should look your best.. it just makes you feel good! It lifts the spirits up to feel like a lady!
