The Friendzone Pt. II (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)

It's my fault really,
For choosing men
Who've never had a real friend before.

I used to be offended
By how I'm the "friend," yet
They'd turn around and date trash.

Not even good trash either:
The kind that's self-contained and mostly paper,
The kind that's easy to recycle. No,

It's always that wet trash,
With no bag,
That I'd be terrified to stick my hands inside, personally. . .
The kind that attracts pests like
Rats, roaches—raccoons.
I can smell it a mile away.

---

If my best relationships ended
Because Waste Management came,
I'd be emotionally unavailable, too.

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
