A LETTER TO MY LIL’ SISTAH by E-Vonn Harris

this piece makes me wanna say sorry 4 the people that hurt u …U still write(no matter what) so please trust that god still has a plan 4 u
 
young gurl thick body and she got a sultry sway
but no one took the time 2 figure out how she got this way 
 
emotional scars that will heal Lord willing in time
it takes a strong minded person 2 take a peak in her mind
 
her feet have walked places that others will never b blessed 2 go
her life’s cross 2 bare is… all she been through and has help her obtain her flow
 
her heart skips beats 2 a song in her head- tha lyrics were composed 2 bless
not 2 lure her 2 bed 
 
only a sick human could do what they did ….
but i know your precious heart is big…and i pray u forgive 
 
it’s a ticking bomb 2 hold on a pain such as this
it’s like holding a M-80 tight closed in ya fist

the devil saw u 4 what God had intended
u have had many setbacks it seems…yet ya life is splendid
 

u might never see it if u don’t walk with Christ
i 2 have a story of past pain and strife
but i had 2 learn it does not rule my life !!!
 
the enemy wanted u 2 forsake God from the very start

if he attacked ya faith and ya testimony then surely he has done his part
 
but ya stronger than u know look at ya life through Gods luving eye’s
close ya ears 2 the devil and all his counterfeit lies
 
see he only goes after the ones that r blessed
them( meaning u) have one hell of a test
 
but u can’t do it alone Christ has 2 b in the mix
u sound like ya tired…u sound like ya sick of it

all the sadness- all the questions and the crying out “God why me”
how could this have happened in a church no less …Lord cant u see”
 
that all I wanted 2 do was live my happy life
im still young and i wonder why did i get hit with such blight?
 
i feel deep down inside that a part of u still believes
but first all that weight u carry around….ya gonna need relief

now i can’t offer u anything that’s false meaning all i offer is real
see u like me as well as others have indulged in some sort of a cheap thrill
 
But God knew how 2 rope me back in and that’s how i know you’ll b fine
he had a masterpiece when making u ..perfection was on his mind 
 
i wish i could go on and on but miss missy i think I’m bout through
again FORGIVE THEM FATHER 4 THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO …..

    Evonn Harrison wrote a powerful piece! There r many young women that need to read that poem! I’m mentoring a young female intern funeral director who has lost both her parents(1 less than a year ago) & her punk ass boyfriend ran to his family with problems she didn’t know they had & the family tried to jump her. She recently had to relocate because he left his responsibilities on her shoulders! I hear her out & give her strength & encouragement on a regular basis! I tend to up lift all intern funeral directors I encounter but I have a special interest in the young ladies that come into a male dominated profession. I join u in embracing our youth! Well done Evonne.

    @Gene–wasn’t that an awesome poem! I also appreciate your efforts, too. It’s important for young women to have big brothers in their lives. I have some big brothers, both biological and non-biological and i benefit from our friendships!

    Yes it was awesome! Big brother & Big sister help is priceless!!!

    So true, Gene! Young ladies need to know that you don’t have to sleep with every guy that you meet. You can have awesome platonic relationships with men that will enrich your life.

    Good Lord! One intern is 23 years old & thought I wanted to get with her! LOL. I sat her down & told her I’m one of the few that doesn’t want any “girl” that young! I want a “woman”!! After we got thru laughing & her saying she felt embarrassed I told her ” ur cute but u aint that bad!”. We laughed some more. Til this day I’m trying toi help this girl get to where she wants to be. Afterwards I thought it was sad that she thought she would have to surrender her body to get help! What a messed up world we live in! This must happen too often in a young lady’s life! Its sickening. I told her she can call me her “Young father in funeral service”.

    yes i like this…just today my mom and i gave some hope to some young girls and gave a tip to a hard working girl at a restaurant…giving them hope and appreciating that they try to live honestly and best way they can will encourage them that it (life) will get better

    yes, our young ladies need help as much as the young men does!!!! i’m all 4 it!!!! anybody need my help?

    I like this discussion. Having a mentor truly enriches a young person’s life. Women in particular need to have persons without ulterior motives who can guide them on a path that can benefit them inthe future. Being part of an Environmental Group that has a lot of young persons, I am going to create the opportunity to groom these young persons and impact their lives… give them insight into the various opportunities that life offers… influence a vision of what their future could be and avoid the teen pregnancy and other nonsense that goes on in our communities!!!
