    I don't understand this bond called sisterly love.
    Sisterly, being the adjective of love is where
    my heart jumps twice.
    See, there used to be a time when love wasn't so sisterly,
    and I was backstabbing with knives
    that would kill a sister, even if she had nine lives.
    Backstabbing became a systematic pattern,
    and I became afflicted.
    Afflicted from believing the love of a man
    would electrify my hormones,
    make my heart think twice before moving on,
    and so on, and so on...the beat goes on.

    Well, it did all of this and more,
    but I was afflicted because I underestimated
    Sisterly Love.
    I thought that I didn't need a sister,
    auntie, cousin, grandma, or mamma
    because I was gone do my own thing...
    This is My Life...
    Don't mess with my switches, my radio, my b's.
    I don't curse, just please keep your hands off the above please.
    My switches is the speed and level at which I want to
    continue to ride this automobile called My Life.
    The radio is the background music and poetry
    to accompany my "happiness".
    And with a few sips of Alize and vodka, my men,
    whom I pimp and play, would become my b's.

    Well, this ride robbed two years of my life.
    My switches were at their highest level
    til' they began to over power my will.
    The music wasn't so Jazzy anymore
    as my head collided with the tiles of a green,
    burgundy, and grey.
    The tiles,because in my jogged memory
    do they stay and instant replay...
    over and over again...

    What has happened to my plan, my life,
    my ride, my music, and my b's,
    that pimped and played me
    for my virginity and childlike mentality?
    Were these men forced into poverty,
    afflicted with a burning sensation in their masculinity,
    or are they somewhere livin' dead?
    Probably not...it's just a figment of my imagination
    because I forsook the love described as sisterly.
