Rope Burn (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)

  • "Rope Burn"
    Pluck all the flowers
    From my space
    That is constantly in bloom--
    I won't stop you.
    Not to mention,
    It would only make room
    For you to color all my robes
    From crisp white to soft black.
    I won't prevent you
    From prying
    That nut
    (Once hard to crack).
    Just like Janet Jackson suggested
    In her song "Rope Burn,"
    I too have a confession:
    I am ready to learn.

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
