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

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
