Return of the Raven (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)


Remember me, the raven in your window
A hardened stare into your eyes
With lightening flashing to set you blind
What you saw, no longer there

Behold these images of native gods
Your test so now begins
Bringing a rush to shake your soul
And leave you longing more

Now fear sets in, it clouds you mind
Severing all of your senses
In one swift hit, brought to your knees
What you were, no longer are

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
