    (for carmen, rewanda, sherrie, trina & vonn)

    we have no claims to the
    same bloodlines… but…
    you musta been my sister
    in ancient times…
    you coulda been my mother
    in another life…
    ‘cause right here/right now
    …you & i are souldeep
    entwined in kinship of an
    especially spectacular kind…
    & i am honored
    to have been blessed
    with inexhaustible access
    to the priceless secrets that
    adorn the walls of your
    surreptitious sanctum

    so… it’s no wonder that…
    i am in awe of you
    …& the ways that you
    effortlessly personify
    femininity while possessing
    strength that could withstand
    the weight of the world
    i am in love with you
    …& the ways that you
    accept no praise…
    yet remarkably raise
    beautifulblack men &
    supasister type women
    (sometimes without assistance)
    i am amazed by you
    …& the ways that you
    give of yourself in a
    never-ending capacity
    to your chosen king…

    Queen… the only way i knew
    to sing your song was
    thru the words of this poem…
    & somehow it’s still
    not enough to effectively
    express all that you mean
    …& irreversibly bring
    to my everyday existence...

    so i’ll just say—

    you must be my soulsistah.
    (thank you for loving me)

    everybody needs a soulsista, I know that I've had my fair share of tough times when all I needed were my soulsista's and I didn't have them around!!!

    I treasure the soulness of womanness....

    feeling this from deep within..lo'

    I hope one day I can be among those you call Sista...I feel what you say and agree whole heartedly to every word. I thank you for saying it for all of us who feel it in our hearts. You had to be the one to put it down as pen to paper. You are a shyning example of sisterhood. Keep Shyning....Keep Shyning

    From your sister in Shyne......
