Why I call you my sister

I call you my dear sister,  Not because you are from Owo, Or its because you are from Oke Oja. I call you my sweet sister,  Not because you were born in Ehin-Ogbe..

 

 

I call you my lovely   I know that you are not my father's daughter... That I call you my sister,  It's not because you are Olanuwesi's daughter  That I call you my dear sister..

 

 

I call you my Sister sister  Sometime I will call you my sisterly sister  Not because we are related by blood Not because we are same complexion  No No Not because you are an African...

 

 

That I call you my sister,  It's truly because,  I know your journey  I understand our journeys I respect our journeys 

 

 

My dear sister,  I call you my sister  Nor because of blood  But because of our shared experiences  Its because I know what we have passed through  Yes what we are passing through daily 

 

 

That's why I call you my sister  Because we survived  We are thriving in spite of everything  We are achieving against all odds We are sisters breaking every barrier.

 

 

This is why I call you my sister......

To every sister smashing Patriarchy!!!
