Justified (Adam Schexnayder-Crowley, LA)


"I love you."
As a single tear rolled down her face, she walked away into the bright, orange horizon. It was as if she breathed for the first time. The wind bowed to her feet. She had never felt so alive and empowered. The point of no return had been crossed, but she was left with no choice. She felt the last bruise on her abs vanish as she walked away.
Out of nowhere, the ground beckoned to feel her embrace. The guilt of her action weighed her down. Pushed to the edge, she knew it to be the only choice. Dust pillowed into the air, rising. In the distance, the low hum of the sirens filled her ears. Motionless and relieved, she captured this moment. No amount of remorse could summon her back to that dark place. She knew what would be asked of her and she welcomed the question with open arms.

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
