Sister, I Love You
unity.jpg

I don’t know your name or where you’re from

But sister, I love you

I have never seen you or heard of your accomplishments

But sister, I love you

I don’t know of the mistakes or bad decisions you’ve made

But sister, I love you

Sister, I love you because

You wake up every day and choose to take on this monster called LIFE

Sister, I love you because

Even when you are called out of your name, a light still shines within you

Sister, I love you because

You don’t know how amazing you truly are

Sister....

Sister, I love you because

Underneath the layers, you and I are the same

Sister, I love you because

The struggle of loving yourself and being confident, we share

Sister, I love you because

It’s easier for me to love you, than for me to love myself

If I am you, you are me. Why is it difficult for us to love each other in harmony?
