My Sisters

My Sisters your struggles have not gone unnoticed...

Throughout History it has been recorded that you were put in very dangerous, debasing positions just so that you and your Family could Survive...

My Sisters I have felt the tears that you have managed to keep from flowing down your sensitive eyes.

I cringed every time someone uses the B…. word to describe you.

I know that no matter how much strength you possess, that the flower in you wants a life too.

My Sisters it pains me when I see you walk around no confident, unsure of self, because your Man and others, just don’t understand you…

Whenever I see you walking around with the aura of doubt saturated in your every step, it makes my soul weep because I know you are not that weak.

My Sisters, My sometimes Forgotten Queen…

It is because of your Inner Strength in stopping difficult matters from overwhelming you, that I admire the most about you...

There is a beauty in you that is Unmatched...

There is a Goddess trapped inside your Ebony Skin...

There is a gentleness that is in your sensuous eyes underneath all that bitterness that the years of pain have brought you.

My Sisters let these thoughts be a reminder that Ignorance and Diabolical Planning has kept us from nurturing each other.

If you are not Marching beside me, then Our People will never understand what it means to be Truly Free...

My Sisters or should I just call you the First Queen and the First Daughters of Mother Earth?

Or should I just call you the Life Carrier, the Family Maker, the Sensual, the Sensitive, the Rock…the________ _________ _________…

Words cannot define the Daughters of the Divine…
