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.

INTRODUCING HEADLINER: Through the Tears (Steve Duhon - Carencro, LA)

When I find myself alone in the pain. When I feel like I have absolutely no one to turn to. When I wish the hurt would stop. When I don't know what to do. When I feel completely lost. When my eyes just won't stop welling up. When I don't want to bother anyone with my hurt, my pain. When I know that everyone has other responsibilities. I don't want to interrupt them with my hurt. When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
