People Change (So Let Them) (R.E.) (Louis Toliver- Swartz, LA)


It would be a good idea to observe your neighbors
Notice how they struggle along, daily, with life labors
Pay closer observations to people that grow though
It is those good neighbors that change the status quo
Why throw an obstacle in the way of people who change?
A changing human adapts to and leads in her or his community
Why chose to be the acid that corrodes what’s within your range
I must tell you, adversary to change, that humans reject disunity
When a family unites and changes to maintain its values
It is best to decide what’s important, being a family or alone?
We believe that we can live together and die together fully grown
So any of those who use the past to stop progress, we refuse
Dear adversary to change, please understand nature’s stem
Appearances evolve, not substance; people change, so let them

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
