Galaxies Across A Galaxy

By Benjamin Grossman & Ace

I am the birth of the Universe
Spiraling through my soul
I am a galaxy becoming whole
Beyond this life and evermore

A solar system of wombs
A star creating many homes
A heartland that eternally ascends
An emotion that will forever cleanse

The Universe echoing deeply in our veins
Our bodies free of restrains
Breaking through intrinsic chains
Becoming a galaxy’s avenue of many lanes

I am the birth of the Universe
All that flows and spins
A story with no beginning or end

I am a galaxy within
An internal grin
A destiny to begin

Another duet with the fantastic Ace! Make sure you check out her blog Fearless Free Soul.

  4. Benjamin and Ace….This was a superb, seamless thought and I was swept up from the very start and swirled in your cosmic collaboration. Profound, space-time, humankind.. my favorite line is I am the birth of the Universe
    All that flows and spins
    A story with no beginning or end

    What a perfect description of the birth of the Universe..and also of each and everyone of us…some chapters, perhaps , written on levels, we have not learned to perceive…but an ending? Never….

    • Thanks so very much, Karima. I always appreciate your comments and how thought you put into them πŸ™‚ Those lines we crafted together in real time so it was fun to have it come together so naturally. Yes, I like the idea of endless chapters. Thanks again!
