Don’t worry, this won’t be one of those woe-is-me, can you help a sistah find a good sistah kind of rants.
Those have gotten so tired.
But I do want to say that love has eluded my life for a while. Just when you think you’ve captured it, the darn thing slips from your hands.
I’m proud of the relationships (or semi-relationships or simply friendships) that i’ve had with women. all of them have taught me the power of being myself and not settling for anything less. Every woman has taught me something, whether she realized it or not.
P taught me what real love is and what it can do.
M taught me not to settle for second best.
T taught me to not be afraid of what’s right in front of you.
L taught me that everything that glitters isn’t gold.
N taught me that just spending time together, with out going out at all, can be fun.
K taught me the power of friendship, that you have to be friends before lovers.
Another L taught me the bond between sistahs can’t be broken, even if you haven’t talked in a while or haven’t even laid eyes on each other.
And Deepdiva was taught that everything from your past makes you who you are. And will become.
TO ALL THE LADIES OF MY LIFE,
PAST AND PRESENT,
