"Men Prayers" (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


"Men Prayers"

I pray to be the man today
That my mother taught to me to be
It was her that taught me the importance of taking good care of oneself

I pray to be the man today
That my father taught to me to be
It was him that taught me the importance of taking good care of others

I pray to be a man
Even though I have no mother or father
It was me that taught my own self
The importance of taking good care of my own self and others at the same time.

"I Love You" is Enough (Louis Toliver Jr)

Please don’t stress I see what you do all year Everyday you show me Through your actions How much you care for me But please don’t stress It’s not money or possessions That make me give my life to you It’s the moments that are small When people don’t care to look That you show your love most So don’t stress to demonstrate What you already know you do Just say “I love you” and… My underwear will come off for you

God Will Cry (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

This is your soul trying to connect to you for last the time. We have come to the final crossroad in our life. This is the end. These are our last earthly breaths.
From this abuse of yourself, we will both die. You will be a rotting corpse. I will fade away into Darkness. People may mourn your death, at first, but you will be forgotten, while I am left here molested by the hands of Hell.
God will cry, “My child didn’t fulfill her purpose.”
I’m begging you; don’t do this. It has been a slow ride, a slow descent to suicide.
