"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.

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
