Simplicidad (Simplicity) (Rachel Jackson- Lafayette, LA)

Creo sinceramente                                          I believe quite sincerely
que a veces es mejor                                       that at time it feels better
hablar un idioma                                               to speak in a language
que no sea tuyo.                                               that isn't yours.

A mí me cuesta más trabajo.                           It is harder for me.
El resultado es más simple.                            The result is simpler.
Pero las palabras que salgan                          But the words that come out
son sinceras, naturales.                                   are sincere, natural.

Sin palabras tan complejas                             Without complex words
Se tranquilizan mis ideas.                                My ideas become calmer.
Saben que lo complicado                                They know those too complicated 
Simplemente no diré                                         I simply won't say.

Digo lo sencillo.                                                I say simple things.
Lo digo sin decorarlo.                                       I say them without decoration.
Hablo como un niño,                                         I speak like a child,
como un niño muy listo.                                    like a very clever child.

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…
