Family Ties

Explosion into this universe
Gravity forcing beings into radiating flocks of grit
Encircling each other, surrounding the ancestors infinite energy
Locked in by time
Forever growing as the seeds of men enter the wombs of mothers
Space for new singularities burst into the world
Locked into their families by blood and love and chemistry
Each planet its own being but simultaneously anchored into place by ties that bind
Billions of these bonds travel space and time
Mourning death together,
All the while awaiting the new births,
realizing that beginning and end are the same

-- Harlem Mama
