I was terrified and had to escape – and
the journey took me to my only safe place.
I found a heavenly breed of woman,
craving the same girlish wish.
We learned sisterhood isn’t in our blood –
But was missing from the life we exist.
We can’t afford to judge, criticize, or blame
Life taught us these words cause pain
No one told us it was okay to go back in time
Finding the friends that gave us joy before our prime.
Moving forward is the cadence we marched in our dream-
Lost in the fog of conformed low self-esteem.
Her heart is that forever reaching timeless mark –
My past, present, and future soulful sister.
