Abused Me (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


I let you call me names that I never was. I let you convince me that you knew who I was better than me. I let you abuse me because I had no idea what love was. You were my first so I gave you all of me, first. You spoiled me for the worse. I had no way to protect myself from you. You had infected me. You had abused me. My stomach turns because I allowed it. I can not judge myself though, because  I didn’t know any better. I hadn’t been trained in love. You used up all of my love and my spiritual tank fell to empty. But I had to learn that even though you made me feel expired, I had no expiration date. Little did you know abused me wasn’t all there was to the strong 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
