    BLACK FAMILY

    Love has a soul
    Called black mothers
    Who give much and take little
    Even when much ain’t much at all

    Love has a face
    Called black sisters and brothers
    When you need nothing
    But someone to hold

    Love has a heart
    called black fathers
    Who put your dreams on a pedestal
    And pick you up when you fall
    And kiss you until
    You want to love again

    Love has a name called black family
    Who hold each other close
    ‘Cause that’s all they’ve got
    And that’s all they need
    To be happy.

    we would not have made it this far without "us"

    great tribute to our power

    thank you for recognizing that

    and that's all we need

    to be happy

    We Are Family Indeed. Hopefully we can see how simple it can be and not become overwhelmed with each other over little things. It's sad to see a familys fighting at funerals and reunions and splitting up over money of all things. It's a shame when I think about how our forefathers and matriarchs hardly had no money and were closer than some familys today with prosperity. But as you pointed out we always have hope in Love! Keep bringing us together sistagyrl with these Fantastic Family Flows!
