Self-Display (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)



O’ Louis, O’Louis
Where ever art thou Louis?

I mockingly hold my hand faintly to my forehead
I am the Juliet with no Romeo

At least I am no star-crossed lover
Instead I am a star-aligned fighter

My body is fully on display for you to read
I give my stories to you to do as you please

But remember that stories are always shallow at the surface
When they are not penetrated and told by the source

I bow to you
And curtesy to me

Let the play begin with good direction
Now that the dress rehearsal has ended

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
