    Sista Sista, What happen to the dreams of finding yourself
    without a man that beat you down physically and mentally
    drained from the soul inside out without a light to guide your
    soul to clarity

    Sista Sista, No man is that good or Love that great to take
    a kick or punch as he say " You made me do that"
    Your spirit is depleted and gone as you confirm deep inside
    " I should have just left him alone"
    But He Loves me

    Come On Now!
    Why did you go back to the same chaos or bad choice
    saying " he hit me Yeah but He can sho' wax the ---"
    I just look at you feeling my heart cry for your blindness
    without insight
    Sista Sista, Learn to stand on your own two feet
    Love You, caress You, compliment You, Praise your own
    accompliments, walk alone for awhile as clarity step into
    your world
    Then Tell Me What is Love?
    My Sista, My Sista

    re: Sista

    Thanks for commenting. there are so many women in this situation and It blows my mind that they can continue to take the abuse. Believe it or not,
    everyone knows at least one person being abused and you feel helpless
    cause they won't leave the situation and find their worth.

    Sista, Sista
    don't stay in that mess
    the man will only put you to rest
    you're worth more than any, blow to the face
    and staying with this man, is a big mistake

    I love the piece poet
