We, Single Gentlemen (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)



We laugh at the needy men who claim to be gentlemen
We roll our eyes at the men who need lovers as property
We are gentlemen who not only have penises, but have brains

We shake our heads at the men who use sex to mark their territory
We know we shouldn’t raise any children we can’t father
We are gentlemen who may are single by choice, no desperation here

We hold the door open, stand up for what’s right, exude confidence
We aren’t afraid of emotion and have no problem with your affection
We are gentlemen who work hard for the future, setting standards

We are self-made and quite charming to be around, just ask
We are men who know ourselves well enough to live our one life
We are gentlemen who will marry when we please, quite comforting

We have the patience to wait for our right handsome king or queen,
We sit on the thrown ready to reign our ambitious kingdom
We are gentlemen who play Chess while others play Checkers

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
