Word To A Sister

by Rodger L. Hilliard

SISTER, SISTER... Don't despair.
Some brothers don't jock you, cuz your skins not fair.
They've yet to learn the true beauty of you.
They fell for the lies.don't you fall too!!!

So take out those contacts,
take that mess out your hair.
Give a little thought to the clothes that you wear.

You're an African Queen, and should be treated as such.
But all them cosmetics...is jus' a little too much!!!

Beautiful black sister with your beauty untapped,
when you look in the mirror, don't feel trapped!!

See yourself within yourself...your true beauty unseen,
cuz, that's what REAL brothers see...if you dig what I mean!!!
