Special Contributor: Amber J Lucik

     "Calling Amber J Lucik a new author would be like referring to your landlord as a roommate! Though her presence may not be as obvious as other contributors, Louisiana Words would not be possible without Amber. We pay her our rent, so to speak. Her involvement began when she served as an editor at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, along with Louis Toliver Jr., for a publication called the Southwestern Review: Phoenix Edition. From that project sprang the inspiration for Louisiana Words, a collaborative effort between both Louis and Amber to showcase the rich diversity that Louisiana possesses.
     If helping start Louisiana Words was not enough, Amber is currently in the process of converting Louisiana Words into a book!  Be on the lookout for for updates regarding her progress. Amber, thank you for co-creating an innovative platform for Louisiana writers to express their voices. A large quantity of inspiring literature would have never been produced had you not been inspired to action." - Samuel Jones

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
