Freckle Face (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)

I didn't always have freckles.
My face used to be like
What most would call an ideal day:
Not a cloud.
But that was when I was very young.
I like to think that
For every lesson learned,
There is a freckle earned--
Making my face a country sky
Where stars lend themselves to
Imagination and
As I mentally connect the dots.
I search for evidence of Pisces,
Cancer, and Gemini.
I found Orion's Belt easy (right cheek).
I sometimes wonder if
When others look into my face,
They can see the heavens, possibility, and opportunity that I do.
The right one will.
And when he wishes upon my stars, I will grant him the universe
That is 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
