    battles fought above and below

    all there is to life
    is loving slow
    and living without sin
    from alpha to the end
    only then shall we begin to fly
    upon eagles wings
    astral minstrels cry
    while crooning soulful lullabies
    to the moon and angels up on high
    Ephemeral chariots
    cross emerald skies by day
    like judas escariot's sire
    was betrayed in every way
    by base desire and the denial
    of a liar who walked with feet of clay


    my soul has grown deep
    like a river
    langston said
    ethiopia cried out
    we must give unto the dead
    not with a whisper but with a shout
    without doubt
    ancestral souls fine-tune genetic goals
    while double dutch b-girls
    skip lifetimes in one trip
    commit high crimes tight-lipped
    demonic phonics rap like stetsasonic
    bombastical fantastical beats freak
    like mystikal out on the street

    feral crackheads lie
    in search of the next high
    flying by on bat-wings
    drenched by the stench of corruption
    lynched by the mention of destruction
    lust and pride take a dusty ride
    through death valley
    and dark urban alleys
    a baby's wail signals travails
    wafting upon the night's breeze like
    seeds of death and disease that
    freeze the leaves of skeletal trees
    stilling breath and
    slumber's ease

    on the other side of light
    wonder marks the sight of
    brighter days and mighty waves
    in a towering fury of utter purity
    all-encompassing love
    accompanies the dove
    rising ever above heaven's gate
    tupac told us it was too late
    to try to change the hand of fate
    no slate is clean of mortal sins
    nor are we free of thoughtless friends
    the heart senses trends
    we can't begin to hear or see
    nor can we pretend that we are free

    little things matter most
    but like embittered ghosts we
    refuse to toast life
    the sweet moments without strife
    the sight of a child's
    wide-eyed smile
    the delight of living without denial
    trials and tribulations
    face our nations
    stationed on the brink of disaster
    the master calls and faster we ride
    through torturous hell we slide
    losing sight of the real so
    precious moments we must steal
    from alpha to the end


    only with ourselves must we contend

    yes you are on point
    and the sadness have wrap me
    as your flow show openly
    what is
    and should not be
    much love and peace
