    Sister,Sister

    Sister I cry for you
    for me
    for us
    We've given up
    Our world is so corrupt
    I don't know how it started
    But sister we fell pray
    And sister I don't know when it will all be Okay
    Sister we're dying every day from AIDS
    we're bustin' our butts as clerks and maids
    Yet sister I know we cannot give up
    Even though our world is damaged and corrupt
    Sister I pray for you
    I pray for me
    and all our little ones
    I pray for our health and our lack of funds
    I pray for our decisions
    even the bad ones we make
    And I pray for our victory
    no matter how long it takes
    Sister, Sister
    I always pray for you
    Sister I Love you
    and God does too

    And God loves you too sister, as we do also. This piece just filled me with the warmth and care despite it all that our sisters bring. Thank you for this.

    Indeed...we sisters
    face many obstacles
    in this day in time...
    this was so touching
    for the only way we will
    overcome, is together...
    wonderful scribe sister!
