Superman (Jennifer Chehardy-Lafayette, LA)


I thought you were Superman.
Taking off
Brave. No gear. No fear.
Kryptonite?
Pffft!  Muah!
So you thought.
But discovered
When you landed, there lie your krypto.
The green glowing rock of 
The familiar, routine, ordinary.
What next?
Another flight.
But how?
After you've worn the cape.
Es-cape. Leave the cape.
Only to discover you are Clark Kent.
And he is Superman.
Maybe not in flight but in person.
Be that person
With or without the cape.
The story still ends the same.
Get the girl.
Know your weakness.
Always a hero
Just sometimes in a different place.
When you were flying
I said Who is that?
A bird? A plane?
When you landed
I saw you really were Superman.

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
