A Room Full of Sisters

A room full of sisters like jewels in a crown
Vanilla, Cinnamon, and Dark Chocolate Brown...
Now picture yourself in the midst of this glory
As I describe the sisters who are part of this story.
They were wearing purples, royal blues and all shades of red
Some had elegant hats on their heads.
With sparkling eyes and shiny lips
They moved through the room swaying their hips.
Speaking with smiles on their beautiful faces
Their joy and laughter filled all the spaces
They were fashionable in what they were wearing
Kind sisters who were loving and caring.
You see, it's not about how these sisters appeared
Their beauty was in the values they revered.
They were smart, articulate and well-read
With all kinds of history stored in their heads
Jugglers of professions, managers of lives
Mothers of children, lovers and wives
Good-hearted, reaching out to others
Giving back to the community and supporting their brothers.
All of these sisters struggled the path
Suffered from prejudice, endured the wrath.
But they brushed off their dresses and pushed on the door
And they came back stronger than they were before.
Now, imagine if you will
The essence and the thrill
As you stand feeling proud
In the heart of this crowd
A sisterhood of modern Sojourners today
Still out in front, blazing the way.
A room full of sisters, like jewels in a crown
Vanilla, Cinnamon, and Dark Chocolate Brown.
