Paper Cranes (Madison Elizabeth Holland- Lafayette, LA)

paper cranes and aero-planes
above us there is only sky
pondering the clouds so high
like mountains without tops
paper cranes and hurricanes
there is no gas and no relief but people smile through their grief
and move on with their lives
paper cranes and window panes
people stop and look inside
and wonder why we run and hide
living in a glass house
paper cranes and summer rains
flowers bloom in vibrant hues
and everyone has lost their blues
dancing in the lazy sun
paper cranes and aches and pains
tell me, doctor, what is wrong?
Inside your heart there is a song
who will want to hear it?
paper cranes and other things
are sitting in a pile
who will want them now you’re gone
and dead for quite a while?

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
