Who Is Samuel Jones: An Exploratory Series Revealing the Facets of a Personality (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)


Facet 1: C.J. the Protector

C.J. is my family name. Only people who have known me since childhood would know, or even have the privilege, to use it. It combines the initials of my middle and last name: Chavess, Jones. This aspect of my personality is my protector. Therefore, it is the darkest and most callous aspect of who I am. Any pain or trauma is stored and archived within him. This way, personal pain does not easily spread to the rest of who I am. He is devoid of most emotion unless connected to memory, self-preservation or retaliation. C.J. has helped bring me through my life’s most difficult circumstances by tapping into his survival instincts and single-mindedness. His communication style is short and to the point and asks very few questions. He is the most subconscious and difficult part of myself to access. Only those who have hurt me the most have experienced this side of me.

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
