I Ain’t Scared of a “Straight” Man (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)



If I, a man, feel like holding the hand of another man in public
Surely don’t think it’s to make you uncomfortable
Would it make you uncomfortable with a man and woman
Affection is Affection, what’s the difference?

If a group of cowardly men were to surround me
Foolishly showing their ignorance by calling me names,
With my arms folded, I will stand there with a slight grin
And say directly, “I ain’t scared of you, confused little boys.”

Should any man be so irrational enough to use violence
To intimidate me out of public view, back into a closet,
I would protect myself and my man with my brawn
For some people can’t be reasoned with logic or words

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
