Sisters All Around


Men just so unable,

To relate

To women in all their reincarnations

Grandmothers, Mothers, sisters, daughters, girlfriends, wives

And all related variations like in-laws

And strange as it may sound “sister”

Is the most intriguing relationship

Never really believed understanding a woman

Would be my forte

It’s not like there is a ‘Wikipedia’ for Women

So my learning could only be by observing

Sisters seemed to be all around

Grandmothers, Mothers, sisters, in-laws, friends

All had sisters

Heck, even I had sisters

But it wasn’t until my daughters were sisters

That a glimmer of understanding began

And not actually till they were independent

Sweet support, undying loyalty, deep, deep closeness

Which I’m afraid, not sure guys just aren’t really capable of

Extremely satisfying there are people, okay women

Who just want to love and support

Hmm better call my sisters
