    I wish I WOULD have done this one, but I didn't. I found this on the Internet. Since it was marked 'Anonymous', God knows the writer's identity...and I would not think to take credit from him, but to praise him for his words of wisdom...

    LADIES CHECK THIS OUT!

    "IN SEARCH OF A SISTER"

    We are looking for a sister. We are looking for a righteous sister. A real righteous sister. Not one of those teary-eyed girls watching General Hospital who thinks the only love worth striving for occurs at first sight and will be breathless with passion by the second commercial.
    We are looking for a sister who will take time to know a man, and to understand him, and to make intelligent choices about the future they can have together. We are looking for a real righteous sister who embraces passion and wisdom.

    We are looking for a righteous sister who knows how to give unconditional love-not just demand it. We are looking for a righteous sister who will communicate without screaming or accusing, who will listen without trying to think of snappy replies, and who will not perpetuate female sterotypes by using hormonal imbalances as an excuse to act ugly.

    We are looking for a real righteous sister. An all-grown-up, ain't scared of committment, ain't scared of honesty, and knows it's time to save the race righteous sister. A good mother, good wife, good lover, good worker, strong supporter, intelligent, innovative righteous sister.

    A righteous sister who realizes Nintendo is not a mother, BET is not a wife, and Fabio is not her husband. And accept equal responsibility for the relationship righteous sister...and ask how a brother's day was righteous sister. A generate some sympathy for a brother when he's down righteous sister...a righteous sister who knows how to tell a good joke, and how to take one.

    A righteous sister who is confident enough about her looks that she doesn't have to be two hours late for every appointment because she was primping in the mirror. A righteous sister who realizes that if she's beautiful inside, tidy outside, and healthy, then $400 worth of makeup, jewels, and designer fashions are just covering up her real loveliness. A righteous sister who doesn't compare every brother she's ever met to that last immature fool on Oprah.

    A righteous sister who is an example to all around her of what a black woman should be in times like these. A righteous sister whose soul is pure, mind is keen, heart is warm, and body is reserved for the one and only person she will spend her entire life with.

    A righteous sister looking for a man of comparable qualities. A righteous sister who will encourage such a man's interest in her, instead of casting him aside for the nearest crotch-grabbing, illiterate convict who just happens to have a Corvette, a credit card, and a Billy Dee Williams smile.

    A read a book and sing a tune righteous sister...a righteous sister who loves black men and protects black children. A righteous sister who doesn't dog her man-especially in public. A turn Melrose off, put down Denzel's latest Ebony cover, put away the shallow, sugary Harlequin romances, and let's talk instead and build some tender, realistic love that will stand the test of time righteous sister.

    A tell your man-instead of just your homegirls-when you're hurting righteous sister. An "I realize you aren't a mind reader, so I'll tell you what I want" righteous sister. A sister that is open. A sister who can move toward her goals and toward her man's and toward heaven. A sister who is not intimidated or confused when a man opens a door for her, or pulls out a chair for her, or shows her old-fashioned respect.

    We are looking for a righteous sister. We used to call her "a good sister." A sister who loves her people. A sister who doesn't take advantage of a gentleman by hitting or slapping him when she knows he wouldn't dream of retaliating. A sister who doesn't make wild, abusive comments when she knows how hurtful they are. A sister who knows that time and tenderness with her man are more important than the latest gossip on the phone. A sister who says: "I made him feel good. I showed him how much I love and cherish him." A sister who is caring and sweet. A sister who realizes that gentleness and femininity didn't have to die with women's liberation, no more than chivalry had to die with Sir Galahad.

    A sister who says: "I made him feel so accepted and happy and free that he feel asleep in my arms and his heartbeat sounded like the ocean after a storm..." We are looking for a real good sister.

    We are looking for a sister who will turn the ships around. A sister who will go into the schoolhouse, the church, the home, and the social centers, and turn the ships around. A sister who will go to the places where it is open season on our children and turn the ships around. A sister who will hear the whimper of babies born with AIDS or addicted to crack and turn the ships around. A sister who will see the people sleeping on the street and turn the ships around.

    A sister who will support the marches in the street, and the protests at city hall and the school board, and who will turn the ships around. A sister who will remember how freedom feels and turn the ships around. A sister who will together with the warriors and march-if only to cheer the warriors on-down to the edge of the sea and turn the ships around...turn the ships around...turn the ships around...and this time, turn the ships around...

    Boy oh Boy Mike........ I love it......As A Woman, this pretty much the way that I have turned out......A sort of Homie Lover Friend..... Sometimes people don't see what is right in their face because of the bling bling across the road......By the time they finish chasiing that oh so blinding light......aand realize that it was all a facade, it's usually too late.......SORRY FOR THE BLIND........

    The poem is right on time. However, many men seem to only look for that women after they have dealt with many of the other kind. I hope more and more men will look for this woman from the beginning.

    Thank you for sharing!

    Poem about relationships

    Peace and love. I think about the relationship bet male and female, I think of it this way. It should be a time to know one another, a time to see the inside of a person. Male or female we sometimes have an ulterior motives. What we should be and how , we shouldn't be, if it's a real unconditional love.


    A PERMANENT LOVER

    A permanent lover is what I?m trying to find.
    I don't want to just make love to your body.
    I want to make love to your mind.
    I know it will be like a lovely melody.
    I will surely look. I will surely see.
    Pleasure deep down inside of you, where it?s supposed to be.

    Open your mind, to realize the bible reads "if you knock the door will be opened." "if you ask you will receive.
    If you seek, you will find."
    You see physical sex is just a casual thing.
    The reason I don't rush you is because I don't want just a one night fling.

    I know. Deep down inside is where all your secrets hide.
    But not from me and there will be no mystery.
    I can tell if you are bona fide or just going along for the ride.
    I know how to treat you properly and you will see.
    Like the queen you are, with respectability.
    To me you seemed like the reasoning kind.
    So I will go slowly inside and captivate your mind.

    Listen really close at what I?m about to say.
    I want you to remember these words each and every day.
    I don't want to rule you.
    I don't intend to abuse you.
    I just want to intertwine your mind with mine.
    I will wait for my relief and for you to give me the sign.

    It may take me a little time, but as surely as there is a god above!
    If you're not contrary, we can have real love.
    If you are for me as sure as the sun shine bright.
    I'm gonna say this outright.
    After I hold you next to me, all through the night.
    When the morning comes, I know you will, see the light.

    If you knew the things . . . I've seen.
    You would know exactly, what I mean!
    Making love to your mind is something I would love to do all the time.
    This emotion is like a sweetscentedbreeze and a glass of wine.
    I find just having sex in your mind is oh! So divine.
    And if for some reason these things don?t come true
    So what! I'm still for you . . .
    And because your kind of love can never be overdue.
    There's no other girl I can think of.
    That's worthy to receive this kind of love.
    ....but you!
