We Be Queens

We Be Queens, my sisters and me
We talk about life, love, even poetry
We treat each other with love and respect
Forging those friendships we won’t regret
No time for petty jealousy or silly drama
We have each other’s back like a second Mama
None of has it that easy or fun every day
But always other Queen’s to carry us along the way
Reminding each other about God’s goodness and grace
Admonishing each other in this sacred, blessed place
We share advice on money, men, and life
Some even tell stories about our ex’s new wife
We share about our children, families and dreams
We do it all with compassion like true Queens
Together we stand, we shall not be misguided
We have strength in our beauty, always united
Preserving our stories and wisdom in historical ink
We speak of legacies that will make generations think
One day when we are long gone, our ashes to the sea
Some shall inquire, asking “Who was SHE?”
And from our thrones high in The Universe
Our spiritual voices shall profoundly outburst
“We Be Queens, that’s Who We Be,
Queens Always, my Sisters and Me.”
