The Hollow-Hearted (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)

     You don’t really care about me. I know. You don’t really care about anyone. Where’s your heart tin man? If I were Dorothy, I’d pick the scarecrow and the lion, before you. If I reached into your chest and clenched my fist, I would fear that my hand would be exposed to your vapid ambitions. Now feel this. I pull my fist out of your chest and open up my hand and “Presto!”…nothing there. No magic. No love.

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
