In Your Hands (Kisha Kana-Lafayette, LA)


I’m sick and I’m tired
Sick of the whole scene
No one to admire
People are just being

Existing for life
Not for love
Please cut my strings with a knife
Inside this gilded cage, I’m a dove

Wanting to fly
Longing to soar
My eyes cry
But my heart roars

Poverty holds me here
I fight it
Your presence I feel near
I need you more than I admit

As I walk through this maze
Upon your cloud
You gaze
Waiting to be proud

As I stumble
As I fall
My heart will crumble
I feel so small

My mistakes will return to haunt
Maybe forever
Behind my back, people will taunt
My faith in you will die never

When will you reveal my purpose?
Young or old?
Sometimes I feel it as a curse
But, in my heart, I know my life is gold

In all my sorrows
I know what I say is true
Even with the uncertainty of tomorrows
For my life was given by the hands of you

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…
