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

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
