I Remain Indestructible (Lauren Speyrer-Lafayette, LA)

  • I survived
Metaphorically I've fought through life and never backed down. Little did I know that all those struggles, hard decisions, and standing tall even when I stood alone would give me a mentality that guided me through tragedy.
  • You tried to kill me
I took you on. Two to one. Bet you never thought you could lose. The odds were clearly in your favor. I was the weaker sex. Unarmed. Bleeding. Bruised. Hurt. Your tortured me, in every way. You fucked with my head and you violated my body. You stripped me of my dignity. And I still one. Two against one. Odds in you favor. Man against woman. And u lost. Yep, u beat me, and to months later parts of me still hurt...but I lived. I fought you. Both of you. I took u booth on, toe to toe. Stupid move. I do not allow myself to lose. My decisions to live fucked you from the moment I made it. You poor men, u never stood a chance after that.
  • Transformed
I found myself after this. I am no loner doubtful of me. I am a bad ass. You can see it my eyes. My confidence is undeniable. My strength is obvious. I will not allow myself to be defeated. I will never lose this.

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
