    Speak Sister Speak
    Say it with your unrivaled technique
    You are truly the envy of the whole world
    From ancient times to modern times...
    Your voices...
    Your strong voices...
    Utterances as divine as the sound of wind chimes
    The poems...
    The prose...speaking of the simplicity and complexity of the beauty of
    The rose
    Speaking of heroism and courage
    You have the world listening

    Speak Sister Speak

    You have birthed nation after nation
    Our leaders and our royal kings
    Amazing you are because when the sisters speak
    The Universe...the cosmos....they sing
    And they rejoice...rejoicing the sounds of your voices
    With almighty praise....and so
    We give you praise
    With our arms extended to the heavens we give you praise
    Strength that is unsurpassed and...
    A shining example for the masses
    Of our people
    We listen for from your mouth comes wisdom
    Knowledge
    Understanding
    From your strong oratory comes power

    Speak Sister Speak

    The way you speak and your delivery
    Is the tenth wonder of the world
    Sojourner Truth spoke truthfully
    Maya Angelou speaks inspirationally
    Nikki Giovanni speaks artistically
    Gwendolyn Brooks speaks poetically
    Angela Davis speaks politically
    Sonia Sanchez speaks so creatively and...
    Coretta Scott King spoke so regally
    That's only a few that can speak
    There are many more....so many stars in this universe
    So many constellations
    The Black Woman, boy, can she speak

    Speak Sister Speak

    Nerfertiti was a renowned queen
    The sister did speak
    Like Queen Nzinga
    Like Queen of Sheba
    Like Queen Hatsheput
    Get the picture?
    These sisters ruled....they spoke
    Bringing forth energy that was no joke
    The sisters are outspoken
    Many are soft spoken
    But their resolve is never unbroken
    These past and present ones
    These wonderful women-folk
    For they have told of the flowing of the waters of Babylon
    Weaved tales of cities buried beneath the sands of the Kilimanjaro
    She
    Is
    A perfect twin to the majesty of the Pharaoh

    My Queens of today...they speak
    Sisters...
    We real men love you
    Need you
    Support you
    We salute you
    We hear you sister we hear you

    Speak on Sister speak on

    Hi Brother George
    This is my first time reading your poetry
    Welcome! :wave: Welcome! :wave: Welcome! :wave:

    This is s wonderful drop
    It is so uplifting and filled with the joy
    of understanding some of the things we as sisters want
    from our brothers
    Your flow tells me that our brothers are at our side
    And don't let a few who don't understand
    Stop our voice from being heard. Tremendous
    I love the vibe it has given me.


    Peace

    To hear a real king speak, so eloquently, so passionately about queens...warms my heart dear brother. I humbly thank you for this regal salute. :)
