I Can See Your Potential (For Louis Toliver Jr.) (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)

I can feel what you're going through:
I've had to grow before, many times before.

When they refer to "growing pains," they aren't lying
Are they?

It hurts to grow, but it especially hurts to outgrow:

To outgrow you home,
To outgrow your friends,
To outgrow your beliefs,
And to outgrow yourself.

That last one is especially painful,
But you can't reach your true potential without a little pain.

Those who remain with you are the ones who have grown alongside you,
And you will see that you have lost nothing and gained a ton.

So remember, "No pain. . ."

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
