Stream of Consciousness (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)

I am floating.

Relaxed, spinning
And star shaped,
Flowing with the current
Of my mind.

I am floating.

The guppies nibble
At my toes,
But something deep inside me knows
They're are distractions.

I am floating.

I hear the growl 
Of a bear.
Paws slashing through the air,
I am the salmon.

Rosy with love,
Glimmering with hope,
The jade beast
Wants to cannibalize me.

I am floating.

I do not dive deep beneath
To escape surface perils.
I am not consumed,
As fear was the missing spice.

I am floating.

And I am paused
By the rocks
Representing mental blocks.
So I let go,

Remembering that the pebbles beneath me
Were once rocks as well.
Oval and smooth
They have been softened by the stream that carries me now.

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
