No Easy Way From The Earth To The Stars (James Leland Ludeau- Lafayette, LA)

Gravity hurts
Falling from your arms 
Where I longed to be 
I read it all wrong 
Wasn't what it seemed 
Out of the lion's den 
Born again 
Treading my own path
I was all aboard 
Until you said you would be King 
'Cuz that's not how my story will be written 
Not smitten 
I won't fall asleep for 100 years and wake up to be rescued 
I'm the prince & the princess & the King of my own tale 
I won't fail 
Back on my feet
 Reassembling the pieces 
Don't have to pretend any longer 
I'll write my own destiny 
Share my thoughts 
Bare my soul 
Be made whole 
Blindsided by you I saw stars 
Now I'll fly to them 
No easy way from the earth to the stars
I've never loved easy 
Never loved easily 
But I'm wide awake 
And my heart is open 
No longer bound by a liar's ideal

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…
