In sisterhood I share this letter with you based on your experiences and mine as well.
In honor of the month which just passed
Let’s get a trash can and get rid of the past
Half a man, unreliable, and without a future or plan
Or destination thus far
Let’s just jump in our car
Leaving behind the past as fast as we can
Let’s make some new plans
What am I saying?
What do I mean?
Let’s put the green light on tonight
Give a suspended license to those who racked up traffic tickets time after time
Keeping in touch
A license suspension to those who
Call when they want
Fake the funk
Inconsistent with regard to affections
Men who act like adolescents
Keeping us close but yet so far
Shopping for other options near and far
Keeping us around for their own measure
Let’s stop them and claim ourselves as national treasures
Let the universe know that you’ve moved on
Bring the next candidate: good, kind, and strong
In your path because you’re ready
Be a loving strong black woman already!
Demand the positive action you give and deserve
Demand it without words or fear
Make time for only those who value you
Give everyone else the boot and blues
For with these actions we become stronger
And no longer wonder
Why we are spinning our wheels going nowhere?
Wash these fools right out of our hair!
If they don’t love you - why should you care?
Today is the day!
No more excuses!
Whip out that phone and start reducing
The clowns –absent and negligent in your life
Say a quick prayer and move on tonight
You deserve everything great, good, and more
Be with those who show you the love
No more disappearing men
No more men who don’t help
No more men who think only of themselves
If you give and don’t get back
If his excuses are lame and wack
Look in the mirror – smile- and adore
You are worth so much more
So let go as much as you can of your unhealthy past
Focus on your present
Invite the future with a blast!
Love yourself my sista and have hope
Let’s not waste our time with meaningless devotion
To people who aren’t worthy of our time, attention, and love potion
Forget your part time existence
I’ll be fine
Don’t waste anymore of my time
Today is the dawn of a new life
A new existence
A bright light
That went off in my head
To love myself even more than hot buttered bread
Happy March my dear sisters – go ahead
Let them go
Don’t hold on or you will not grow
Or make room for the good stuff you deserve
You are all that!
Spread the word!
You’re taking applications
Only those worthy will have the blessing awaiting
For an interview to have a place in your life
Only good people who are like J.J. …….DYNOMITE
Need apply to fill available positions
If you don’t get it then you are hard of listening
The good things I do for you
Has to come back as much as I do
No liars, thieves, or time for crying
For he’s had many an opportunity and failed in duty
So when he hears from you no longer
He can sit around and wonder
Own your blessings from above
Await good friends and good love
Goodbye to my old bottles of whiskey – one thing for sure- you will miss me

The wisdom of our mothers and older women can provide so much guidance in our lives if we seek the knowledge. While advice may fall to the wayside when given, years later we realize the value.
Sam (Married At First Sight) is an excellent model for women that take charge when dating. Watching her grow, love, take responsibility reaching awareness of self-sabotaging behavior was amazing.
