Shallow Pool (For Samuel Jones) (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)

     If you think diving into the shallow end of the pool is hard, try dying there. It’s much worse. I haven’t experienced it. But I’ve stood and watched others die. I was so scared to dive in because, I thought I would hit my head and knock myself unconscious. I feel horrible often. If I had just eased myself down the steps into the water, I would have learned I needed no floaters. I could have stood up in those shallow waters. I could have reached out and pulled those to safety I watched drown in shallow pool, when they had no idea all they had to do was stand up. I feel so horrible. But I can be a better lifeguard. I can safely guide those, who want to dive into life, towards the deep end. It’s not as dangerous as it seems.

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
