Mosquitos (Samuel Jones - Bastrop, La)

Rushing water
And endless floods
Used to mean ...
 You and me:

Flowing emotions,
Fast moving passion,
And the knowledge
That we run so deep.

I could see it
In your eyes. Though,
You were smiling.
Why were you so afraid?

I would ask you,
And you would reply
Stick by stick
By stick.

I noticed the dam,
But still you smiled
Stick by stick
By stick

The water has stopped
And I feel it no more.
I've been standing here for
Far too long.

And then there's a slap—
A mosquito trap.

But now I notice the swarm

Steadfast (Catrina Crowe - Ruston, LA)

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
