Friend in Me (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)

"Am I the baddest bitch?"
I would quiz myself.
"Bad?" I would scoff back internally,
"You're downright NOTORIOUS!!"

I'm uplifting to myself!

Even if tears were to tumble down my face
Like a flat-chested gymnast,
There is this unshakable, unbreakable, unmistakable
Part of me that always brings me through:

Through the good times,
Through bad,
Through impatience and immediate gratification.

I'm so glad to have a friend in 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
