Sister doesn’t play no games,

Sister tells it straight,

Sister doesn’t hold back words,

Sister isn’t always sweet.

Sister tells it like it is

In the jungle or in the streets

Sister is bonded to me by

More than just love’s blood,

Sister clears the air for me

Like only sister could.

Sister calls me Queen Bee

A butterfly learning to use my wings

Sister always reminds me

To consider every little thing

Sister respects our matriarchs and

Reminds me to do the same

Sister is more than just sister to me

The bond it has no name

For sister is me and I am her

Our lives are intertwined

Sister will always be sister

In and out of time.
