Sisterly Love

by M. J. Joachim

Sisters…you know what I’m talking about…
That female bond between women, because
We get it
We understand what it’s like to be a woman
Complete with menstrual cramps and periods
Then child-bearing woes
Lost in our identity – but not to sis
She knows us even when kids, cooking and cleaning
Have taken on new meaning in our lives
Men are wonderful
We all agree, in some strange alien sort of way
They care for us like champs
Putting up with our hormones and cycles
While they play with their toys
Of which we sometimes feel
Like we are one – only to be reminded
That we are their ladies and women
Sisters in a male bonded world
Working like dogs
Playing like fiends
Relaxing like there’s no tomorrow
Perhaps there wouldn’t be,
Were it not for our sisters
To stand by our sides
In the midst of our challenges, heartbreaks,
Celebrations and joys

Thanks to my blogging sister Tina, for sharing this wonderful award with me. In the interest of sisterly love, I happily take this wonderful opportunity to share it with 5 other blogging sisters, because I’m #5 of 5 sisters in my own family.

Thank you for visiting Effectively Human.
