I Still Believe in Love (Kisha Kana-Lafayette, LA)


I lie awake naked in the dark
Stripped of all restrictions
When I’m alone with myself and can feel who I am
I wonder if there is anyone out there who will love me
As I am, with the makeup off
I don’t think methodically nor melodically
All I have are words that come from my soul
Does anyone really want to know the secrets I keep?
Would they discover my treasure boxes with wide eyed wonder same as I do?
Someone recently told me that everyone wants love, to love and be loved and if they say different, they are lying
Clichéd maybe, but I believe him…we are born to love
Put on earth to love, feel and touch other human beings through the depths of their soul
Through solace I believe you can come to know yourself
But until you love unconditionally and feel that same love back, you don’t really know yourself at all
Because in those moments, all else falls away as if you can live on the energy of love itself
I still want that.  Yes. I still believe in that.

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
