Phoenix (Madison Elizabeth Holland- Lafayette, LA)

Make a list, darling
Of things you love
I'll help you burn it
In the backyard
Here's a lighter
What do your thoughts
Look like in your head
You know you have to
Let them go
If they're things
You truly care about
For whatever reason
Arbitrary, but that's the rule
Apparently it's proven
So tell me dearest
What are these things
That are extensions of
Your soul
Hopes dreams desires
The things that validate
The person you are
Flowers kitties seahorses
Dreamcatchers and sundresses
Books and fantasy tales
You and me
Let's burn it all
Burn the world
And like phoenixes
Rise from the ashes and flames
Whole, untouched, made new.

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
