Love Cure (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)



It requires us to take a match and strike it against our hearts and let our blood ignite. Our bodies will begin to heat up in a way that radiates the same warmth when a stranger stops to help us fix our flat tire. Or that man that sits on a bench next to us: he lights a cigarette, takes a puff, and asks us what we are thinking about. We tell him nothing and he cares enough to say “bullshit.” Or that lover that takes the time to pick out all of the raisins in the trail mix, because we don’t like them, even though he or she does. Oh, it means the world when we sacrifice a little of our time to acknowledge each other the best we can. Little did we know, it only takes a small dose of love to cure a large life of loneliness.

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
