My Sister - Poem by Jessica Holter

I'm not a religious woman,
but I know how to love my sister

Don't want you to have to go to Jesus
Want you to build an altar on my soul and
Lay your burdens down
My sister in xstacy

With sister fellowship I will help bear your cross
With a little help from our sisters

I'm not a religious woman
My mouth is too full of soul healing tales to chant
Nam myoho renge kyo
Into the mirrored belly of Buddha

For, when I see your face
Distorted with pain...
I have seen my reflection!

When I nurse the wounds your lover leaves
Across your heart,
Your body, your Face,
I have healed my own wounds

And when you cry alone at night
Thinking no one hears
believing Man's God
Has turned a deaf ear to the Sisters

I am hoarse in the morning
too hoarse, my sister, to wait for God

I wail for you,
I wail for you, my sister
and our unified voices
send those demons straight back
to hell for you, my sister
to hell for you, my sister
