The Psychic Was Right (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)



"I'm studying abroad!"
I thought defiantly as I churned
The deepest internal eye roll
I could muster.
"You will not leave here;
Who you need to meet is already in Lafayette."
She said with the plainness
Of having done this a thousand times before.
I like psychics, I really do.
I even believe in them. However,
I have a problem with anybody telling me
What I can and cannot do--
Smokey eye/turban combo or not.
"I'll show her," I affirmed to myself,
"I've worked too hard!"
Yet, I'm still here.
I had totally forgotten about her prediction
Until recently. I mean,
That was back in 2011 and
I thought she meant THAT summer.
"You will both come together and create something wonderful."
Girl, get out of town.

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
