The One Who Showed Me

To my sister, who taught me some handy tricks to living life. Happy Birthday!
(I had to pop SWV, Brownstone and Tevin Campbell on for inspiration. Hope you like it).


From Tevin Campbell
to SWV
Kicking it to Brownstone
or hugging paused taped scenes of 3T
Growing up to Monica and Brandy
Janet, Blackstreet, Brian Mcknight and Jodeci
I love how you’ve influenced me
Not just from the beats
but also how to survive whenever I felt weak.
I love how yearly, your birthday is 6 days ahead of mine
because we have 7 years between us
I get 6 days to plan my year ahead
with you as my role model guide


For you.


To my sister who holds me to this day
From the days babysitting me as a child
To instantly suggesting jobs cos it was something I needed to find
Never am I out of her caring sight
and this I will cherish for life
and I pray with all that I have
That God continues to shine love onto your life
Your logic, your sense of responsibility
Your money saving ways
Although, sometimes extreme in a tight ass way (hehe)
but I’m glad you’re only a street or so away
Cos when karma strikes and its now you borrowing my clothes
I can get them back to wear straight away

You are a true blessing to me
A Miss Independent I inspire to be
and whatever it is that you are praying of God to do
I pray alongside you, hoping, too, that it will come true .


with Love, sprinkled with poetic cheese.


your sister.
