"Reality Check about Using Your Heart" (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


Reality Check about Using Your Heart

This is meant for good advice
Lead with your head not your heart
I didn’t say don’t show your heart
But not everyone wants to see it
Even if you mean it
So don’t show it to the wrong people
Because they will know how to break it
Don’t take it personal that’s just life
Though, not so fast, the heart is useful
Because using yours will inspire love
But let the potential for those who love
Shine from them and show compassion
As they learn to survive in a hard world
Who you are is not who they are
Most conflicts are caused by the heart
For most who want love
Don’t know how to give it
So don’t expect love back
Be patient and understanding
Guide with your head
See that people love even if they don’t say it
Let those who love you
Show their heart the same time as you
And neither of you will expect
Nor more or less than that
This is how happy relationships are formed

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
