    We call eachother sisters - Sistahs Supreme -
    though our ancestral blood
    doesn't seem to run so deep
    but even so, when your times are lean
    i ask you to hold onto me
    for nights i sat with you crying the plea
    but I am tired of carrying you through
    calling me on the phone every night at a quarter ta two
    crying about how your man did you wrong
    i could and personally have sung your song
    verbatim, word for word i know it all
    but, after a while, staying with him is your call
    let it be your choice to fall
    you allow this chaos to continue
    you allow the bruises to accrue
    you are his enabler, love and stupidity don't misconstrue
    living like i have never seen you live
    he believin since woman was created out of mans rib
    he got the right to crack three of yours
    lyin ta everyone, telling 'em you walked into doors
    sister, if i can still call you sister
    (Sistah Supreme hear my pleading whisper)
    telling me you only answer to him, the #1 Mister
    that you can't speak unless he says
    when did you become so into his and only his . . .
    his life, his pain, his troubles, his addiction
    that you fail to see your own affliction
    running around hustling that isht
    he spendin the money on whatever he see fit
    first begging, then stealing, now beating
    this ain't the way he should be treating
    you supposed to be his woman and queen
    you have always been a Sistah Supreme
    wake up from this nightmare it ain't a dream
    a lot of my hopes for woman i now place in you
    realize yourself and that this relationship you in
    has got to be through.

    This was a very emotional piece because I was sister friend at one time and I was a fool but now I have learned to love #1 and let no one take my soul. Thanks for reminding me of how far I've progressed.
