Please Let Me Show You Love (Madison Elizabeth- Lafayette, LA)

A bleeding heart beats inside my chest
I want to fix you, hold you gently
If only I had the ability to help you the way you need
I could save you from yourself
Stay with you, take care of you
You may not even realize who I am
But I love you and care about you
Once in my not-so-distant past
I learned what it was to be completely alone
And to feel like no one understood
Or could help me
Maybe now you see why I want to help
I know the way you feel
Maybe not the exact emotion
But I understand the depth of your pain
I have scars like you do
Maybe not as deep
But they are still etched into my wounded heart
So please
Let me be there for you
If only to hold you while you cry
Tell you that it's gonna be okay
Because even though you can't see the light now
Doesn't mean it isn't coming
And if it's alright with you
I'll stay and keep you company until then
Wait with you until you realize
That no matter how alone you feel
I will always love you.

I’m Not a Nigger (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

You called me a “nigger” One word to rule me  Your word bullet of hate 
You’re life is a such hell  You think 6 letters  Justify your fake inferiority 
Just 6 letters  I got those and 20 more  Together
My mind is bulletproof I’m so far above you  I can call you scum in 6 different languages 
You can’t hide in white pride You are hate  You’re the nigger
