Punching Bag (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)



Taking on a leadership role is difficult. Many times you have to rely on and be patient for a stranger to recognize who you are. You would think the strength of progress would be the loudest voice, but the few voices of the status quo yell very loud. I look around to see those who believe in faith coming out of the woods, but I wish it were quicker, because people love to pick on the person who stands out alone.  For now, since I accept fighting for new progress against old ideas, I have to accept being a punching bag until I am recognized as a friend and people see and hear the other people yelling for change with 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
