The Caterpillar and The Moth (Madisyn Barbosa- Lafayette, LA)

     Once there was a caterpillar walking out on a limb, and a moth flew by and landed on a leaf next to the caterpillar who was getting more and more nervous walking out on the limb for fear it would break. The moth said,"Look at you, all ugly and plump, walking and being afraid with every step, where as I can fly and be free. The caterpillar said, "Of course you aren't afraid to take risks, because you can't fall, as I on the other hand, will do what my body tells me too, and my body and mind say for me to take a chance on this limb to break, its what I have and need to do. The moth said, " You will never be like me". The caterpillar said, "Thank god, now if you excuse me, I have some work on myself to do." and began making a cocoon.

     Time goes by and the moth flies by the cocoon and says "Hello caterpillar, I see you are just hanging by a thread, and you will soon fall, and I can fly away laughing."

     The butterfly comes out of the cocoon and tells the moth, "See, I knew I'd never be like you, I knew I'd be better because my struggles made me stronger, now if you excuse me, its my turn to fly." And the butterfly smiles and extends her beautiful wings out and flies away smiling....

     The moth was so astonished she fell off the limb onto the ground and was stepped on by a man that was walking by that didn't even notice her, because he was looking at the butterfly....

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
