    dedicated with love and respect to my sista/friends...they know who they be

    ramblings from the hope chest...


    she ain't a hypocrite
    or nothing
    ...she keeps it real
    and she don't gimme no BS
    when I need to hear
    clear word

    she don't use no pulpit
    to preach no sermons

    just that arm of love &
    understanding
    she wraps around me

    she sees everything
    before it happens,
    she scary like that

    got some kinda
    extra soul perception
    into my situation

    she knows how
    easy it is to fall from grace
    without even taking
    a step outside

    before I plant my
    feet on the floor
    in the morning
    when I rise

    she knows

    I slip...

    and she'll gimme a
    crooked little smile
    lean her head
    to the side
    look me
    dead in my eyes

    & tell me without
    even moving her lips

    "you know God ain't smilin, sis"

    every person in the world needs another person just like this in their lives..

    a rock...strong and dependable, who will comfort and guide without judging..

    extra soul perception huh..I love those three words..they say it all..
