She Has Ruby Red Lips

She has ruby red lips, glittering gold, sparkling eye shadow, flawless skin.

A plum purple, golden embroidered gown flowing gracefully with her every movement.

A half-dozen white roses, clutched in her hand.

Her name rings out, followed by an eruption of cheers and chants.

Crossing the makeshift threshold of a royal court, she boldly walks across the field house, head raised high. Making history with every step.

She is crowned the homecoming queen.

A diamond-jeweled tiara is placed ever so delicately on top of her golden colored hijab.
