RIP by Suli Breaks

To all the victims of the gun crime and the knife crime,
To them I say R.I.P.
But when I say R.I.P.
I dont just mean rest in peace,
I mean rewind it please,
So we can remain in peace,
I had to read it properly,
To get it right in perspective,
Coz you reside in poverty,
But dont want rights in property,
Youd rather rob innocent people,
Coz he gains respect in popping me,
That the real ignorant philosophy,
We need to reject its prophesy,
Stand up and R.I.P.
Rep it properly,
Coz rawr its peak,
Went from rice and peas,
To rifles in pockets,
ruining inner-state projects,
Raw its a par,
To its riots in parks,
Raw I pead,
Remember I plead,
The realness I preach,
We have reminders in present,
Why do you think the damenola taylor center R.I.P.
Remains in Peckham,
Rise in position,
Life Remember its price,
If you say reba its principle,
But really its pride,
Raw I preach,
Remember it please,
If you dont just remember this piece,
So next time you hear me say R.I.P.
Know I dont just mean rest in peace,
I mean rewind it please,
So we can remain in peace,
Peace.

Love liberates- Maya Angelou

“love. she liberated me to life, she continued to do that. and when she was in her final sickness i went out to san francisco and the doctor said she had 3 weeks to live, i asked her “would you come to north carolina?” she said yes. she had emphysema and lung cancer, i brought her to my home. she lived for a year and a half ..and when she was finally in extraneous she was on oxygen and fighting cancer for her life and i remembered her liberating me, and i said i hoped i would be able to liberate her, she deserved that from me. she deserved a great daughter and she got one. so in her last days, i said “i understand some people need permission to go… as i understand it you may have done what god put you here to do. you were a great worker, you must’ve been a great lover cause a lot of men and if I’m not wrong maybe a couple of woman risked their lives to love you. you were a piss poor mother of small children but a you were great mother of young adults, and if you need permission to go, i liberate you”. and i went back to my house, and something said go back- i was in my pajamas, i jumped in my car and ran and the nurse said “she just gone”. you see love liberates. it doesn’t bind, love says i love you. i love you if you’re in china, i love you if you’re across town, i love you if you’re in harlem, i love you. i would like to be near you, i would like to have your arms around me i would like to have your voice in my ear but thats not possible now, i love you so go. love liberates it doesn’t hold. thats ego. love liberates.”
