Announcement: Samuel Jones is Co-Managing Louisiana Words

Good morning everyone,

I am excited to announce that I am joining the Louisiana Words management team! This means that I will be accepting, editing, and posting submissions to the Louisiana Words blog.We accept any form of literature including- but not limited to- poems, short stories, letters, journal entries, and essays.

I strongly encourage anyone with the desire to write to submit their work. Not only is this a personally fulfilling experience, but you will also be revealing the richness of diversity and culture within Louisiana.

 You can submit your work to me two ways:

- Email with "New Submission" as the subject
- Send it to me as a message via Facebook with the heading "Louisiana Words"

Please be sure to include your name or pen name, current or hometown Louisiana location, and of course the title of your poem along with the poem itself.

I look forward to receiving your submissions!


Samuel Jones
Louisiana Words

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
