Grand Universe by Antifan Real

She thinks she can make it now
She knows that there there’s no win or lose.
She thinks that the fight is a matter of mind,
She knows that we give up or choose.

She believes that pain is a matter of perception,
We hide ourselves in ache, loss and rejection
She thinks that she can move past the hell,
She knows she has his protection.

She heard the whispers and saw the descent,
She felt the flutter and witnessed the havoc
She thinks forever is in the palm of his hand,
She knows life is precious, tragic and magic.

She hid in the dark, safe from the violence,
She kept from the path that could lead to no return
She shrugged off the violations,
Yet still felt the burn.

She wore the brand and inclined her head,
She was obedient and gave obeisance
She came out of the silence,
And revoked public acquiescence.

She saw tomorrow through the light,
She saw beyond the material world
She felt the vibrations and breathed in time,
Awoken, as the universe whirled.

Without hope,

 

We would have nothing to pray for-

 

Without faith,

 

We would have nothing to believe in,

 

Without life and death,

 

We would have nothing to look forward to-

 

Without God,

 

We would have been nothing at all.

Deuces

By Dyversiti
Eighth Note Stars

Two becomes one beat

Everybody tryin’a own me
(Control me)
Nobody wanna just show me
(Nah)
People don’t wanna jus run with me
They also gotta have a bitta piece of me
(My piece)
No one wanna keep real for the loyalty in me
They need’a go back and carry what’s mine of me
(Carry it)
People want your silence when you know of them
They won’t give any back when it’s you or them
Everyone catch the deuce when I’m down again
(Deuces)
So
(Chorus)
If you ain’t down to jus roll with me
Why Imma give you the best of me
If you ain’t got me on the flip side
Why Imma grab you from the slip and slide
Aint no body got you for the ride or die
Just wanna play you ’til they see you fly
A’ight
 (Hook)
Everybody wanna jus own us
(control us)
Nobody tryin’a just show for us
(Nope)
People don’t wanna just be with us
They also gotta take a little piece of us
(That piece)
No one wanna keep real for the loyalty in us
They have’ta go back and carry what’s ours of us
(Ours)
People reap our silence when we know of them
They won’t devote it back when it’s us or them
(Nuh uh)
Everybody catch the deuce when we up again
(Deuces)
(Chorus 2)
If you ain’t down to jus roll with us
Why we gonna give you the best of us
If you ain’t got us on the flip side
Why we gonna save you from that slip and slide
Ain’t no body got us for the ride or die
but they come right back when they see us fly
(Flying)
Yep

Crushed

Heaven

Crushed
by Twinkle VanFleet

Crush
Do what we must

Splendiferous
Love is us

Hardship
Seemingly unjust

Pain
Body and soul

Faith
To feel whole

Loss
You lose

Gain
We choose

Survive
A bitter-sweet divide

Actions
Go forth

Implement
A forgiveness course

Internalize
Hush, hush

Onward,
Crushed.
