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.

We would have nothing to pray for-
We would have nothing to believe in,
Without life and death,
We would have nothing to look forward to-
We would have been nothing at all.

One of the few non-rhyming I’ve written. First public publication 1995, written awhile before that. x
Two becomes one beat
Nobody wanna just show me
People don’t wanna jus run with me
They also gotta have a bitta piece of me
No one wanna keep real for the loyalty in me
They need’a go back and carry what’s mine of me
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
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
Everybody wanna jus own us
Nobody tryin’a just show for us
People don’t wanna just be with us
They also gotta take a little piece of us
No one wanna keep real for the loyalty in us
They have’ta go back and carry what’s ours of us
People reap our silence when we know of them
They won’t devote it back when it’s us or them
Everybody catch the deuce when we up again
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

Do what we must
Love is us
Body and soul
To feel whole
A bitter-sweet divide
A forgiveness course
