Personal Love Lessons: Self-Love (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)


"Personal Love Lessons: Self-Love"
Once, I loved someone who didn't love himself. I didn't realize it at the time, but loving a person who lacks self-love is like pouring water into a cup with a small hole at the bottom:
If you pour a whole, whole lot, all of the time, that cup will remain full. But as soon as you run out of water, or get tired of constantly pouring, that hole continues to negate your loving intention. The cup leaks and leaks and leaks, until there is as much water remaining as there was in the very beginning. It is empty.
For your own sake, so that you can remain full, love someone who is already complete. Love someone who already loves himself.

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
