Your Love Was The Bullet, I Was The Target (by James Leland Ludeau III - Lafayette,LA)

your love was the bullet
i was the target
and anything that got in our way
was sure to be killed...
you know it ain't easy
for your love to leave me
a hole in my heart
blowing me apart
there are no words to describe it
the feeling of shards of glass digging into the muscle of my heart
knocking the wind out of me
you were so long gone
but you were my lifeline
but if you come looking for a hard time
they're never hard to find
and i was addicted to the pain
your love was a revolver
and at least i'd die happy
i bled our love out
til there was nothing left to hold onto
limp
lifeless
and as i gasped for my last breath
i realized it was all my own doing

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
