    There's a special rythm in what they do
    A rhythm that's theirs and theirs alone
    It's like their love which is pure and true
    And when a brother treats her totally right
    There is nothing for him a sister wouldn't do

    I love a sister's up front ways
    Though some might say she can be rude
    It all goes back to that rhythm thing
    Sometime I love feeling a sister's attitude

    For the other side of her fascinating coin
    Is a woman fully versed in the art of loving
    Who can love her man like no one else can
    Worth all the drama she's capable of giving

    So being the man I am
    I'm doing all I can
    To love my sisters judgement free
    You see the rewards of truly loving a sister
    Is the incredible love she will give to me

    BE

    i wanted to respond with something like;

    YEAL...i love my sistahz, too...but my sistahz need to wake up from all that DRAMA they be speading and live in today...

    BUT i didn't know how that would be received.

    SO...i want to say that i love my sistahz...and their aggressive moves when they're getting their groove thang on...handling their business like only they can...but, then, they've had a lot of experience with handling theirs...ALONE. ain't that right, fellaz?

    HOPE that was better received.:)...my sistahz still need to get up offa that DRAMA though.

    you know.

    NICE piece {tribute to the sistahz}, BE.
    thanks for doing them up right...though, i'm not too sure 'bout that one line: "Worth all the drama she's capable of giving" they might get the impression that all that DRAMA is a good thang.

    Baller,
    the trick is to work with and through the drama. It's all good.

    I dig this

    and I'm feeling Brotha Baller, too. I'm knee deep in drama and wish somebody WOULD explain to a brotha how to work with it, through it. Hell, just to "work it" would be cool.

    But I'm still loving my sistas. Can't help myself.

    thanks

    ummmm

    DRAMA is good for the body and soul... but in moderation. Some sistaz take it to a whole nudda level. Yes dear I'mmmmmm baaaaaccckkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!! I'm about 18 shades darker and lovin it. I've missed these thoughts you've had on your mind. Keep sharing them if only to tease the senses.
