    When I think of you my chest puffs out
    Proud to share a connection with such a beautiful spirit no doubt
    You are the essence of the love that I symbolize and embody
    A beautiful, black, sister held to the highest decree

    Intelligent, bright, perceptive and smart
    You are the complete perfection of God’s best work of art
    Creative, talented, gifted and driven
    Great things are in your future, it’s obvious and a given

    Never dumbing down just to obtain momentary attention
    But you are highly regarded, a true honorable mention
    It’s almost as if you KNOW and BELIEVE you were created for a reason
    For you waste no time on inefficiencies resulting in duplicity or treason

    You are the epitome of the fruits of the spirit
    Galatians 5:22-23 has your name written all up in it
    Love, joy and peace you represent from day to day
    Your countenance is remarkable and displays in an extraordinary way

    Patience, kindness, and goodness is but a small piece of your prize
    For the angels are hovering over you protectively with admiration and prideful eyes
    Last but not at all in the least are faithfulness, gentleness and self-control
    You know how to keep it real without degrading yourself or selling your soul

    Uplifting and encouraging, I could just continue on and on
    Always setting aside your own needs to be someone else’s break of dawn
    Without you there is no me and this world would never know the glory of your crown
    And how a real, magnificent, beautiful, black sister really gets down!

    Always love hearing the empowerment of women in poetic expression. Despite everything they go through and endure. Our sisters, our mothers, our grandmothers, our ancestors. Where would we be without their strength and their love?
