He Needs You (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)

Stay with him, Samuel.
My intuition said.
He needs you!
(I gathered from the feelings I read.)

"He needs me?" I scoffed,
"He doesn't even care!"

He's a ship in dark waters
That's grateful you're there.

"Quoting poems, I see.
So, I'm a "lighthouse" again?"

You never stopped being one—
You've stuck to the trend.

He's halfway there, dear Samuel,
Whether you realize it or not.
Your biggest task of all
Is to stay in one spot.

He's still in dark waters
Which is why he can't see
That you are the light
And what's meant to be.

"What about all my wants;
Are those just up in the air?
I have to sit here and take this—
That just doesn't seem fair!"

I know you're upset
And wish to do more,
But by being patient and constant,
You show you'll endure

The good times and bad times
That merge and split beds, and
The failure and success
That may go to one's head.

Keep being a lighthouse!
Believe me and you'll see that
The key to winning is resilience.
That, and consistency.

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
