The Weapons (Jadyne “Jay” Bell- New Orleans, LA)



Self-forged in the pit of soul
With a whole lot of anger that I just refuse to let take control
See this bunker I call my brain holds enough ammunition
To engage, escalate, and end WWIII
Luckily, I’m the one with the safety on, welded tight
Just in case I might wanna go there

Not likely though
I prefer the simple satisfaction of holding my big guns
Here are of my favorite ones

There’s charisma:
I’ve never had to fire this one
The pure sight might make a lion put its tail between its legs
And beg for my mercy. You’ve got nothing to fear

Then there’s witty:
A hand-held hell-raiser that Angelina Jolie would favor
These bullets bounce from body to body with brilliant elegance
All that I’ve ever wanted

Lastly, there’s honesty:
Coated with a jet-black matte finish
It’s sure to finish any conversation
A few shots from this one… pure obliteration

The weapons are my words, my potential and creativity
The weapons are my gifts
The weapons He has given me

INTRODUCING HEADLINER: Through the Tears (Steve Duhon - Carencro, LA)

When I find myself alone in the pain. When I feel like I have absolutely no one to turn to. When I wish the hurt would stop. When I don't know what to do. When I feel completely lost. When my eyes just won't stop welling up. When I don't want to bother anyone with my hurt, my pain. When I know that everyone has other responsibilities. I don't want to interrupt them with my hurt. When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
