The King Has Arrived (Samuel Jones-Batrop, LA)


With a soft breath
And a long step,
The King has arrived:
Rose gold, rose hair,
Rose skin, rose lips,
And the darkest of
New Moon eyes.
He can see directly
Inside of you.
It is a blessing
As well as an art:
When he looks into you,
What he sees
Is the current state of one's heart.
He can see the joy,
He can see the pain--
All the feelings
To which you are devout.
If there is any love
Left deep inside,
He is sure to draw it all out.
"Long live the King!"
His subjects shout
With rose mouths
Conveying their rose thoughts.
Little do they know that
The King, himself,
Has his very own heart
Unsought.

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
