The Last Battle (With Myself) (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)

If I win, you win. We move forward
And this story will end with progress
If I lose, you lose. We fall backward
And this story will end with failure.

I am an enemy to myself because I am weak
On the surface and I can feel my judgment
I am a friend to myself because I have strength
Down to my core and I can feel my power

But I’ve decided the conflict ends
Both sides and all parts have combined to win
To make the perfect cultural ally
And I’ve decided the war against unjust begins

"I Love You" is Enough (Louis Toliver Jr)

Please don’t stress I see what you do all year Everyday you show me Through your actions How much you care for me But please don’t stress It’s not money or possessions That make me give my life to you It’s the moments that are small When people don’t care to look That you show your love most So don’t stress to demonstrate What you already know you do Just say “I love you” and… My underwear will come off for you

God Will Cry (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

This is your soul trying to connect to you for last the time. We have come to the final crossroad in our life. This is the end. These are our last earthly breaths.
From this abuse of yourself, we will both die. You will be a rotting corpse. I will fade away into Darkness. People may mourn your death, at first, but you will be forgotten, while I am left here molested by the hands of Hell.
God will cry, “My child didn’t fulfill her purpose.”
I’m begging you; don’t do this. It has been a slow ride, a slow descent to suicide.
