    Sister, Sister

    Sister sister
    I got a story to tell
    So I hope you listen up…..
    As I speak of the untold story
    Sister sister
    Oh sister…..
    See I been there
    and done that
    As our ancestors fought
    For us to be free
    No more raping of our pride
    So we can walk with
    our heads held high
    not down…..pull together
    instead of pulling apart
    out of jealously and hate
    it only leaves you regrets
    Sister sister
    Oh sister…..
    I have watch
    as we destroy
    Each other
    Tryin to be slick
    Playing games..dat
    Aint my style……
    Stepping in my prime
    Playing my theme
    Just got a story to tell
    See I know that
    I am something
    Black and proud
    Strong in my own
    And no one can take
    that away
    Sister sister
    Oh sister…..
    Hear my cry
    Stand on ya own
    It don’t take a man
    To make me
    But he can be there
    In the flesh supporting
    As you do you
    And I do me……..
    And know who you are
    As I know who I am
    Feel the vibe within you
    We got
    that strength...
    to talk that talk
    and walk that walk
    The brains mental power
    and we both strive
    For the same…..
    So stop tryin to be slick
    And realize we on
    the same side
    Sister sister
    Oh sister…..
    Now I love you and will always
    But we’s got to stick together
    Do you understand what I am saying
    Or did it go flying
    Sister sister
    Oh sister…..
    My sister….
    I am something hope
    you think your something too

    Sister, Sister
    Sistaaaah
    You been on my mind
    Got me worried about you all the time
    Life's pressures and cruel intentions
    Are way too many for me to mention
    It's enough to deal with the toils of society
    Always finding a way to try and break me
    but oh My sister
    Don't fall for the game
    Dust yourself off and try again
    Needs that lack
    Broken backs and stacks of crack
    all seem in vain and aint worth Jack
    but oooh step back
    Cause I came to tell you sister
    Your dreams may have been broken
    efforts taken as a joke and...
    why should I even try
    fallin on my face aint fly
    Eyes red from swollen tears
    Mistreated by fellow peers
    Young beautiful faces
    ruined by wrinkles down the years
    Sister, Sister
    Did that man abuse you again
    Cheek fell victim to his hand
    I'll neva eva understand
    Despite all that
    Why you claim to be a MAN
    Try to grab your crotch, but all I see P*S*Y in your hands
    A male whore in a shell of a man
    Sister, Sister
    My Sister
    Please leave those drugs alone
    Neglect no more your kids
    Make right your broken home
    White powder and yellow crumbs
    That get you numb and dumb
    Broken dreams and padded hurt
    Empty beer bottles turning your insides to dirt.
    Sister, sister
    Oh my sister
    sometimes caught in life’s
    turning twister
    Single parent, all alone
    Making ends meet
    All on your own
    Sister, Sister
    ~My Married Sister~
    Holding together a home
    Providing everyday
    Respecting God's union
    Bonding in matrimony
    Sister, Sister
    ~My Single Sister~
    Doing your THING
    Strong and Independent
    Home the bacon YOU bring
    ~Many Women of many colors~
    Backgrounds and communities
    Maintaining our purity
    Living in Unity
    Learning to LOVE
    Setting hate aside
    Protecting our inner beauty
    Cause IT’S our pride
    Never ever run and hide
    Though many tears you must have cried
    Through it all, we continue to rise
    Birthing life into this land
    Created by God as gift to man
    His better half
    His other hand
    So the BEST, Always demand
    Because your a sister
    A beautiful black Queen
    My Sister, Sister
    What Worth really means
    Whoever disagrees
    You betta wreck their dreams
    Taking what's rightfully yours
    BY ANY MEANS!

    When sisters truly come together, with good intentions, it is always a good thing. What I felt from this collab was a belief in self respect, self love, and unity. I've always believed in love of self. Anyone who truly knows me, knows that I broke the mold, lol, and I revel in that, almost to a fault. Kudos, ladies.

    Expressing love and admiration...as well as support...for ALL Sistas. And, on the way, giving love to us Brothas. I ain't mad at you.

    Much love you deserve.

    This piece is inspiring. If I were a Sista, I'd be inspired to respond with a pice myself. All Sistas should read this and work toward making it an everyday reality in their lives...imho. Keep it flowing.

    :thanks: for sharing a part of ya'll with us.
