“You’re not an African because you’re born in Africa. You’re an African because Africa is born in you. It’s in your genes…. your DNA… your entire biological make up. Whether you like it or not, that’s the way it is…” ~ Marimba Ani

Different sizes, shapes and colors,
Yet we have some of the same problems:
Male problems, children problems, family problems,
Mental and physical problems.
You name them, we women have them.
We comfort one another, we share with each other,
and we get on each others nerves.
Sistahs helping sistahs, is there anyone like us?
You give me your shoulder to cry on,
I give you my helping hands.
You give me a listening ear,
I give you my advice and strength.
You give me me your friendship,
I give you my support and unconditional love.
