3…2…1…Self-Destruct (Louis Toliver Jr)


3…2…1…
Who’s clock am I living by?

It must be man’s because my spirit transcends time
I must be careful not to put my faith in time
If I spend my life racing against time then it is likely I will self-destruct
Time is not my enemy but my friend
It is to only here to remind me how important it is to be living

I shall resist those things that leave time used or filled
Instead I will embrace those things that expand time
3…2…1…the countdown of the clock is just my imagination
Only GOD knows what time is and what it shall be
I must not let time turn me into my own enemy

Time is not life.
Life is the then, now, and tomorrow.

I am living life, not time.
I will not self-destruct.

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
